Storage box holding dangling over busy SF street

Crane failure leaves storage box containing steel dangling over busy street in San Francisco By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' A storage box containing an estimated 6 tons of steel is dangling from a skyscraper over a busy street in San Francisco's Financial District.

Police say a crane was lifting the box to the top of the former Bank of America building on California St. when the crane malfunctioned about 1 p.m. Sunday.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/w1ifF2 ) that when the crane failed, the storage box was left dangling near the 50th floor, or about 600 feet above the street.



Police have closed several streets to traffic as crews use a manual crank to lift the storage box to the roof
