(AP) Officials say a wall in a small Brooklyn apartment building has collapsed and hurt a worker during renovations undertaken without a permit.
The city Buildings Department says the worker has been taken to a hospital with minor injuries after the accident Wednesday in a building on Division Avenue, near the Williamsburg neighborhood.
The agency says a non-load-bearing wall gave way on the second of the building's three floors. No one is living in the building.
The Buildings Department has stopped work on the project and cited the building owner with conducting the work without a permit.
No telephone number or representative could be found for the company listed in city records as the building's owner.
