AJ Soprano's Place Whacked By a Crane

5/30/2008 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that "Sopranos" star Robert Iler owned one of the units in the building damaged in today's massive crane collapse in NY.
Robert Iler
Iler, who played A.J. Soprano on the hit show, was home at the time, felt the impact and heard people screaming. He quickly escaped the building without injury. Sources tell us the whole episode was "very traumatic" for the young star as he saw all the devastation first hand. Iler has lived in the building several years. His apartment was not affected.

The 200-foot crane collapsed on Manhattan's Upper East Side, where the 32-story luxury condo complex was under construction. Two workers were killed and one was seriously injured.

This is the second such crane collapse in nearly three months.

This blurb fist says he owned one of the units destroyed. Then it says his apartment wasn't affected. Which is it?

Really, really sad    

#2...good eye.

WTF is wrong with NY??!!? This is the third time this has happened in recent months. Those people need to understand that safety is first. Get the dollar signs out of your eyes and start thinking about the human lives that are affected by your careless accidents.

NY is dumb.

Its possible he owned more than one unit . One unit owned by him was damaged . The unit he lived in was not affected ! I dont know its just a guess.

What a joke. If it was "very traumatic" for him, imagine what it was like for those who owned apartments that were completely destroyed. I think AJ needs to calm down and go back to therapy.

hahaha No I think #2 is right...it's the kind of f*ckup TMZ is used to doing. Wouldn't be surprising for them to write the story wrong ;)
If he owned 2 units why not mention it then?!
TMZ will clarify the story shortly I'm sure :P

Learn to read people - it says he owned a unit in the BUILDING damaged by the crane. No wonder Americans are considered stupid around the world.

Lisa dear, they changed it. This happens quite often. They don't proofread their stories, but they read comments immediately, and then make changes when their goofs are pointed out, and pretend like it never happened.
