    Production of the "Spider-Man 4" movie in New York City was delayed slightly Monday when a crew got stuck in a frozen crane in Lower Manhattan, and New York City firefighters were called in.

    A spokesman for FDNY said four units were dispatched at 11:13 a.m. to 31 Market St., where crews were preparing for a film shoot.

    DNAInfo reports a crew had gotten in a cherry-picker to place plywood on the roof of a building in preparation for a shoot when the crane lost power mid-air.

    Firefighters used a bucket of their own to retrieve the crew from the stalled crane, said the FDNY spokesperson.

    No one was hurt. Firefighters cleared the scene before noon.

    A representative for Local 52 Motion Picture Studio Mechanics Union confirmed crew members were in the area this morning.
