(AP) New York City has suspended the license of the operator of a crane that collapsed Wednesday, injuring seven workers.


The Department of Buildings says a preliminary investigation shows crane operator Paul Geer was attempting to lift a load that weighed more than double the crane's limit.


The department says he was also trying to lift materials outside of an approved loading zone.


The crane's 170-foot-long boom fell onto metal scaffolding and the wooden framework that made up the first floor of what will be a 25-story apartment building.


A telephone number for Geer could not be found. TF Cornerstone, the project's main contractor, did not return a call seeking comment.


The construction site remains closed.
