NEW YORK — A large chunk of ice has apparently fallen from a building in Manhattan, crushing the roof of a parked vehicle.

It happened just after 4 p.m. Tuesday on Charlton Street in SoHo.

The fire department is at the scene and says there are no reports of injuries.

A photo shows brown, chunky ice atop the caved-in roof of the vehicle.

The city’s Department of Buildings released a statement advising property owners and contractors to secure properties during snow and ice melt conditions.
