Worker dies in fall from scaffold

From the Daily News:

A worker fell to his death from scaffolding outside the Dream New York hotel in Midtown on Wednesday afternoon, plummeting eight stories, cops said.

The man landed on top of a sidewalk shed covering the front entrance of the luxury hotel on W. 55th St., police and witnesses said.

“He was working on the scaffolding and he fell,” Jennifer Harvey, 36, said. “ It was absolutely horrible. It’s something I can’t unsee.”

The worker, believed to be in his 40s, was working alone on the hotel’s fa├žade about 2:10 p.m., cops on the scene said. He was not immediately identified.
