Construction Worker Falls to Death in Hell's Kitchen Elevator Shaft
New York -- An elevator mechanic was killed on Tuesday when he fell four stories without a harness at a construction site.
The worker was working at a Hell's Kitchen building that would be a condo complex. He was working 4-stories up, wearing a hard hat, but no safety harness. The 30 year old was walking across some boards when they broke, sending him down the shaft.
He was found in the basement in standing water unconcious.
The victim was rushed to Bellvue Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
