A MAN was pinned under a crane today after it collapsed on the Gold Coast.

The 35-year-old was trapped for about 45 minutes after the crane toppled about 7am (AEST) on the corner of Queensland Avenue and Surf Parade at Broadbeach.

He has been taken to Gold Coast Hospital with a broken leg.

Witnesses say the crane operator partly fell out of the cabin as the machine came down but was pinned under the wreckage.

Police said it took more than three hours to clear the crane away and reopen the road to traffic
