A deadly fall brought work at the site of the Manhattan West development to a standstill after two men tumbled out of a bucket lift to the ground below.
Video shows the moments after the accident at the 62-story mixed-use building going up at 9th Avenue and 33rd street.
EMS crews rushed one victim to the hospital with head and body trauma. The other was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victims were both 45 years old. Witnesses say both men appeared to be wearing safety harnesses but may not have had them secured.
It happened just hours after another fatal fall in Lower Manhattan Thursday morning. Police say Juan Chonillo fell through an open hole and dropped 27 stories to his death at a construction site on Maiden Lane. According to relatives, the 43-year-old father of six was supporting family in Ecuador.
