NEW YORK --
The parents of a construction worker killed in a New York City crane collapse a year ago are traveling from Kosovo to mourn their son at the place where he died. Ramadan Kurtaj and Donald Leo were killed last May 30 when the top part of a 200-foot crane crashed down on a Manhattan residential neighborhood. The accident followed a March 15, 2008, crane collapse
that killed seven people.
Kurtaj's parents were granted a visa from Kosovo to travel to the city for the anniversary of their son's death. They plan to place a picture of him at the construction site Saturday.
Investigators have said a bad weld failed in the collapse. The workers' families have sued the crane makers and prosecutors have launched a criminal probe.
