ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA — A construction worker is lucky to be alive after a giant crane collapsed and narrowly missed landing on him at the construction site of the future police headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida.

CCTV video shows workers scrambling from the falling crane, which landed just a few feet from one worker.
Fortunately no one was injured in the incident, according to the St. Petersburg Police Department's Facebook page.
