Crane collapse forces Sept. 11 commemoration to move from National Cathedral to Kennedy Center
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The collapse of a huge crane brought in to repair earthquake damage at the Washington National Cathedral has forced a Sept. 11 commemoration with President Barack Obama to change venues.
Organizers say Sunday's "Concert for Hope" will now be held at the Kennedy Center. The president is still expected to speak at the event.
The crane toppled over Wednesday and the operator suffered minor injuries.
A Sept. 11 anniversary event scheduled for Friday at the cathedral is also relocating. The "Concert to Honor" will also now be held at the Kennedy Center.
The Kennedy Center will honor all tickets for the Friday and Sunday concerts.
