From the Daily News:
A 28-year-old steelworker died Wednesday when he plummeted from a Manhattan luxury hotel tower that was under construction.
The worker, who lives in Staten Island, slipped and fell 10 stories, landing on a scaffolding just above a sidewalk bustling with mid-morning pedestrians.
No one else was injured.
Coworkers said the victim was not wearing a safety harness and that it was his first day working at the site.
"I think he was working out on the ledge on his own," said a worker, who asked not to be identified. "We're not really sure what happened. It's very sad."
And the construction company was hit with 8 DOB violations.
