Worker dies in Manhattan building collapse
One person was killed and another seriously injured when the interior of a building that was being demolished collapsed Friday morning.
The collapse took place at around 10:30 a.m. at 27 West 38th St. between Fifth and Sixth avenues.
The seriously injured worker from Northeast Service Interiors was trapped in the building’s basement for three hours.
The demolition had the proper permits. Work will stop until the city determines it can restart safely.
