Crane Malfunction Disrupts Downtown

Nov 30, 2011

The arm of a crane placing bulkheads on the construction site of the Marriott Courtyard hotel bends under the stress, forcing nearby office buildings to evacuate. Onlookers gathered along Grace Street in downtown Wilmington to watch as crews worked to resolve the situation. 



WHQR office and on-air staff made their way to the streets while the station continued to broadcast in automated mode. Our sincere thanks to WFD first-responders for their courtesy and professionalism.
