A 22-year-old construction worker was killed Monday while shoring up a building wall in the Meatpacking District, cops said.
The man, who has not been identified, was working on the building at 19 Ninth Ave. when the accident occurred. He was taken around 12:45 p.m. to Lenox Hill Hospital, where he later died, officials said.
There are five open building code violations in the two-story complex dating from 2011. An investigation into the worker’s death is ongoing.
