Shoddy work by contractors at the toxic former Deutsche Bank tower contributed to nightmarish conditions that trapped and killed two firefighters, FDNY sources told the Daily News.
Blame contractors for hazards, lack of water: FDNY source
General contractor Bovis Lend Lease's construction plan called for the 41-story skyscraper to have a working water source throughout the demolition.
"They were responsible for having water in that building and for keeping it free of combustible materials," a fire source said. "Clearly, that did not happen."
TRAPPED IN A NIGHTMARE
The process of dismantling the tower has been plagued by insurance battles, labor strife, haz-mat issues and mishaps - including a pipe falling 35 floors onto Engine 10, injuring one firefighter.
Just make them pay a little fine, and let's move on. We wouldn't want the contractor to lose out on that $6 million bonus. Right, Bloomie?
