NYC Construction Worker Dies on the Job

A 43 year old construction worker died after an accident at a construction site in Brooklyn on October 11 when a piece of machinery snapped and hit him in the head.

The construction worker was operating a pile drilling machine when a shackle from the machine snapped and hit him in the head and left him unconscious. NYPD responded to a call and found the man “unconscious and unresponsive with severe trauma to the head and body; he was pronounced dead at the scene. A security guard at the scene stated he left briefly to grab lunch and by the time he came back, the man was dead. He continued to say it is sad the man went to work and is now gone.
