SOPRANOS actor Robert Iler owns an apartment in a New York block that was struck by a crane that fell and killed two construction workers on Friday (30May08).
Iler - who played A.J. Soprano in the hit series - was at home in the Upper East Side building when the tumbling 62 metre (200 foot) tower crane struck.
The crane was working on a new 32-story-apartment block when it collapsed and destroyed many apartments in Iler's neighbouring building.
According to, the 23-year-old actor - who had lived in the block for several years - felt the impact and heard people screaming, although his home was not affected.
Two men were killed and number of others hospitalised by the incident, the second crane collapse in New York in just two months.
