Florida... scary moments at a construction site in Miami Beach today after a crane tips over and lands on a building. The accident sent the truck carrying the crane up into the air with a man trapped inside. He was eventually rescued by firefighters and did not appear to be hurt. No word on what caused the accident, or on any damage to the building...

Maryland... three people are critically hurt after a building collapses in Baltimore County. It happened this morning at the vacant Bethlehem Steel plant while crews were demolishing a building there. Eight people were hurt, but five of those injuries aren't too serious, and everyone else in the building has been accounted for. No word yet on a cause...

Minnesota... the newest city to hold a Comic Con is calling it a huge success. Minneapolis became the fourth U.S. city to host the event, joining New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. And there was definitely a large Star Wars feel to the whole thing, since yesterday was "May the Fourth be with you" Day. The pop-culture extravaganza also attracted celebrities like William Shatner. And with that we hope you live long and prosper, on this USA Update.
