NEW YORK (AP) — Crews examined the wreckage at a Manhattan building Sunday that was damaged in a deadly crane collapse, as displaced residents waited to see when they could get inside.

Gina and Larry Bliss and their two daughters, who live in the damaged building, had been told they could go in Sunday morning to check on their belongings.

But when they got to the police barricade surrounding the accident scene, where two men were killed and another injured on Friday, they were told to return later.

The family moved in a week before the crane hit the Upper East Side building and has no plans to leave.

"As long as the building's safe, we're going back," Gina Bliss said. "We love the area."
