[Video: Fuel Spills Into Water After Crane Collapse]
Authorities said the crane was on a barge at the marina off U.S. Highway 1 in Brevard County.
The collapse of the crane caused the barge to sink. The crane smashed through a cement beam holding up part of the dock and knocked out the water line that is used for fire protection.
McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling says Josh M. Dawe died when the crane collapsed onto the aerial lift in which he worked.
Local authorities say the crane fell about 10:45 Wednesday morning onto the roof of a warehouse under construction in the central Illinois town.
Kimmerling says preliminary evidence shows the boom collapsed on the lift while girders were being set for the roof. She says a cause hasn't been determined.
