MT. LOOKOUT, OH (FOX19) -

A construction crew crashed a crane into a Mt. Lookout home Tuesday afternoon, according to Cincinnati fire officials.

The incident happened while crews were working to remove a tree from a Windisch Avenue home at about 1:15 p.m.

"I was telling the guys to put on safety goggles. I was concerned about their safety. And within about 10 seconds, they were pulling the limb up and it was getting really wobbly and all of a sudden it sounded like a tree was falling down. That was actually the train disconnecting from the boom truck," said Courtney Piana.

Piana says the crane sideswiped one of the workers and barely missed falling on to of him by inches.

No injuries were reported.
