Construction worker buried in dirt avalanche

From the Daily News:

A construction worker was rescued from a collapsed trench in Queens on Thursday.

Police said the 40-year-old worker was overseeing construction of the foundations and laying rebar on 72nd Road in Forest Hills when a wall of dirt fell and crushed him.

Firefighters responded at 2:11 p.m. and were able to pull the man to safety with the aid of his fellow workers. Dirt had buried him above his head, an FDNY spokesman said. “He had a pulse, but his body had a blue complexion,” a fire source said.

Same thing happened around the block 2 years ago and that site still has a hole in it.

Didn't a wall collapse on a Tommy Huang building which killed a worker not long ago?
Wasn't he an undocumented alien?
