Massive windmill blade breaks free

Fenner, NY (WSTM) Crews working for Enel Green Power spent much of Friday morning inspecting and later lifting up a 113 foot long wind turbine blade that broke free and fell to the ground in Fenner, New York.

Fenner Town Supervisor David Jones says company officials were on scene within minutes of the blade falling on Thursday. Jones says the company has kept the town updated with the latest information.

"Some of these things, with any machine its just a freak accident," said Jones.

The company and the town will continue to investigate what caused the blade to break free but due to the windmill’s remote location, they say there is no danger to the public.
