Miami woman still missing after crane collapse

Rescuers continue to search for two people still missing -- including a Miami woman -- in the rubble of a demolished Manhattan town house.

Four workers were killed when a construction crane crashed down on Saturday. The body of a fifth worker was found this morning in the rubble. One more worker and a woman who may have been in the townhouse are still missing.

The missing woman was in the city from Miami to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and visit a friend who lived in the townhouse.

Workers are using cranes, front-loaders and other equipment to pick through the debris.

New York's fire commissioner says it's still a search operation. But he admits with each passing hour, "things get a little more grim."
