In March, six construction workers who died in a fatal crane collapse were honored at a 10-year-anniversary ceremony in Midtown.
The families and friends of the six construction workers gathered together to mark the anniversary of the event and to remember and honor their loved ones. This accident occurred 10 years ago when the workers were at a construction site.
A reverend at the ceremony said, “We are here today not for how our brothers died, but more importantly how our brothers lived and how our brothers loved.”
The memorial occurred at the site where the accident happened at around E. 51st St. in Midtown.
The victims were Wayne Bleidner, Anthony Mazza, Santy Gallone, Brad Cohen, Clifford Canzona and Aaron Stephens as well as an unidentified tourist. They were killed when a crane tipped over.
