WATCH: Crane takes out side of Russian apartment building

KIROV, Russia (CBS) -- A construction crane fell into the nine-storey apartment block in Russia's city of Kirov on Sunday, damaging balconies and seven cars that were parked outside.

The footage filmed by a resident of a nearby building showed the crane falling onto the residential building which is home to some 300 people, including 37 children.

Russian Emergencies Ministry reported no casualties following the collapse of the crane.

The Ministry also said that the possible reason for such a collapse was that the crane may have been poorly secured.
