OEM initially said it was a wrecking ball, but sources told WPIX it was a block that was part of a crane at the construction site. Crews are working to dislodge it from the building.

The block hit a tempered class window which is not in danger of falling, according to a source at the scene.

The building stands at the center of the new World Trade Center and is 80 stories high and 1,079 feet tall.
