Falling ice crushes parked car in Manhattan
NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - A large chunk of ice fell from a building in Manhattan, crushing the roof of a parked vehicle. It happened about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday on Charlton Street in SoHo.
No one was hurt but a man's car was destroyed when the huge chunk of ice caved-in the roof.
"I didn't realize until I was, like 10 feet from it because it hit the back and the whole front side was normal," Coltrane Nadler said.
The city's Department of Buildings released a statement advising property owners and contractors to secure properties during snow and ice melt conditions.
Nadler had a sense of humor about the incident, calling it "funny."
The street remained closed to cars and pedestrian traffic while the fire department removed the remaining ice from the building facade.
