Around five beams fell from a crane working on construction of the Lumen building in Playhouse Square earlier this afternoon, crashing on top of the parking garage portion of the structure and causing visible damage.

There were no injuries, a spokesperson for Playhouse Square Real Estate Services told Scene.

"At approximately 1 p.m., there was a loud crash from the Lumen site," the spokesperson said. "There are no injures, which was our first priority in ascertaining that everyone was safe. That's all the information I can share at this point."



A witness said the loud crash was followed by some screaming, but that workers on site also said no one was injured.

You can see more of the damage and where on the project the beams came from, and how lucky it was that they came down on the parking garage structure and not the street, in the pic below.
