An 80-pound illuminated strawberry that's been lowered in downtown Harrisburg, Pa., for the past 10 New Year's Eves was destroyed in an accident on Friday.

The berry fell three stories and broke during a practice run at the Hilton Harrisburg, according to a report from The Associated Press.

Officials said a faulty harness clip was to blame and the hotel is working to build a new strawberry in time for Tuesday night's festivities.

Although the strawberry drop started in 1989, the berry that broke in Friday's accident has only been used for the past 10 years or so.
