Several injuries were reported after glass shattered on a high floor of a Midtown office building.

NEW YORK (PIX11/AP) — Three people were hurt Thursday when glass fell from a Midtown high-rise onto the sidewalk below, authorities said.

It happened about 8:45 a.m. in front of 40 West 57th St., according to an EMS official.

Two people were treated for minor injuries at the scene, and the third person refused treatment, according to fire officials.

Published reports say a window appears to have shattered around the 18th floor, sending broken glass onto the sidewalk below.

It's still unclear what caused the pane to shatter.
