A tower crane at a building site in north-east China snapped and plunged hundreds of feet to the ground today, leaving at least one worker dead.

Horrifying footage captured on a dashboard camera of a passing car in Dalian, Liaoning province shows the jib of the massive crane snapping in half, causing the counterweight compartment to break away and collapse.

The entire structure then topples over and crashes to the ground. A worker in his 30s was inside the operator cab and rushed to hospital, where he later died of his injuries.
