Partial collapse of building near Queens Plaza
From DNA Info:
The partial collapse of an apartment tower construction site near Queensboro Plaza injured six workers Monday, authorities said.
The workers suffered minor to moderate injuries in the incident, which took place at 42-20 27th St. around 11 a.m. when crews were pouring concrete into a 20-by-20 foot form that collapsed onto the seventh floor below, according to the FDNY and Department of Buildings.
The six hurt workers were taken to local hospitals for ailments that included back, leg and arm injuries, FDNY officials said. All were in stable condition.
The DOB halted all construction and issued a violation for failure to safeguard the site, according to a spokesman.
