For the second time in less than a week, there's been a crane collapse in the Houston area.Just after 5pm, Houston firefighters were called to a rescue operation in Kingwood. When they arrived, they reportedly found a mobile crane had tipped, causing the truck carrying it to stand on end.

There are no reports of injuries. It appears that a crew was working around a shallow, decorative pond when the accident happened.

On Friday afternoon, one of the largest cranes in the world toppled at Lyondell chemical plant in southeast Houston, killing four contract workers.
