Huang project kills worker, injures 3 others
One construction worker was killed and three were seriously injured this morning when a wall collapsed on a construction site in Queens.
Police officials say a one-story brick wall partially collapsed at 8418 Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst, trapping the workers.
The victims were transported to nearby Elmhurst Hospital, where one was pronounced dead.
The New York City Police Department says the other victims have been listed in stable condition.
According to the Department of Buildings, a five-story building was being constructed at the site. It was in its preliminary stages and was set to feature a storefront on the bottom and residential above.
Sources say improper work was being done.
Sources also say this is a Tommy Huang project... or perhaps his son...
