    A part of a crane crashed into a window at 3 World Trade Center, still under construction, fire officials say. 

    The FDNY says construction crews were wrapping up for the day Thursday and setting the crane in place when the wind picked up and sent the crane attachment into a window on the 12th floor, cracking it.

    Nothing fell to the ground, and no one was hurt, fire officials said.

    Tishman Construction said in a statement, "Although a glass panel was cracked, nothing fell or is in danger of falling. Further, there were no injuries and the incident was completely contained within the site perimeter. Safety inspectors and authorities are on site and looking into the incident. The panel will be replaced."
