Residents were evacuated from a Brooklyn apartment building Friday after a piece of construction equipment smashed through a wall.
Firefighters say an excavator from a neighboring construction site was leaning against the building when they got there.
Six people were evacuated, but no one was injured.
NY1 spoke to people who were inside the building when it happened.
"There was, like, a boom and then, like, a little shake, and then, the people came, the firemen came, and they said we had to evacuate the building," said one person who was inside the building.
"The second floor, the lady told me that the whole wall shook. She came downstairs and said the building is smashed. So I went upstairs, the whole wall is smashed in. It took the whole sheet rock and pushed it all in," said another.
"I just felt scared because I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what happened until I came outside and it was unlevel," said a third. "To me, it was an accident."
There is no word yet on when residents will be allowed back into their homes.
