1 dead, 6 injured after crane falls on Dallas apartment building

Dallas Fire and Rescue reported the incident was near 2600 Live Oak St., where the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs' Latino Cultural Center is located.

Two people have been hospitalised after a crane collapsed in Dallas amid severe thunderstorms.

"I saw that the crane had actually fell straight through the building and had destroyed a good eight to 10 apartments and so there's like floors and stuff falling through", he said.

The building's parking garage was also heavily damaged, and authorities planned a thorough search of the entire structure for anyone else who may have been trapped or killed inside, the spokesman, Jason Evans, told reporters at the scene.

Evans said "every single level of the parking garage in part has collapsed" and that multiple vehicles were damaged.

Jones says one patient is in critical condition, another is in serious condition, and the third was treated and released.

According to Dallas Fire, at least one person has died and six more are injured.

"We're hoping that what we have at this point is where it ends [in terms of casualties]", said Mr Evans.

Officials said crews are still working to account for all the residents of the apartment but that they haven't received reports of anyone missing. The National Weather Service said the region spanning Texas Hill Country and Dallas Forth Worth is experiencing severe thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and even tornados.

Abbey Kearney told CNN that she lives in the apartment complex. It wasn't clear how many floors in the garage collapsed.

The highest recorded gust in the area was 71 miles per hour at Dallas Love Field, according to the National Weather Service, though winds were likely higher at the elevation where the crane was on top of the building.
