Worker dies at Manhattan building project site
From the Daily News:
A 22-year-old construction worker from Yonkers died after falling 20 feet down an elevator shaft while working on a high-profile luxury building, police said.
Jonathan Lupinski fell two stories to the basement at 281 Fifth Ave. at E. 30th St. about 9:40 a.m. He suffered grave head injuries.
“While stripping the elevator shaft, the worker fell to the cellar level,” a Department of Buildings report said.
Medics rushed him to Bellevue Hospital, where he died, officials said.

Perhaps he should have worn a safety harness...
Cue the non-union and illegal alien worker chorus!
I wonder if cops were immediately deployed to the area to make sure no photos were taken of him.
This preventable tragedy is blocks away from where the city council just approved a environmentally dangerous rezoning for taller buildings.
This has to be stopped somehow. Primary de Blasio.
It's Trumps fault....
Wait two weeks---it will be found that safe practices were not in place. Developers were cutting corners on something-equipment, procedures or training.
Mere collateral damage for the owner.
