Today I read a piece of news from NY Times about
 the collapse of a construction crane in Manhattan
 which killed 4 people and injured more than 10.

It's hard to believe that such this accident would happen in NY
but after 911, anything is possible.
I would like to express my deep sorrow to the families of the victims.

"This construction accident is one of the worst the city has had,"
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said in a news conference this afternoon.
"Our hearts go out to all the victims and their families.

The last sentence is interesting and I looked for its usage in LDOCE:

your heart/thoughts go out to somebody:
used to say that you feel sympathy for someone and are thinking about them

That's the phrase I learned today and again,
my heart goes out to all the victims and their families...
