Two Construction Workers Die in Accidents on Same Day
Construction accidents can be frequent in New York City. Two construction workers were killed on the same day while working construction. The two incidents were completely separate and lead to the deaths of two people.
An accident in Queens led to the death of a 33-year-old when he fell down an elevator shaft while working on a Manhattan hotel project.
A 26-year-old construction worker was also killed on the same day when he fell to his death in Queens. This incident happened just a few hours after the incident in Manhattan. This victim was working on a bathroom in Rego Park when he fell out of a window. This information comes from the city’s Department of Buildings. The owner of the unit has been issued violations for failing to take necessary safeguards for the workers. The victim’s name is John Davie.
The man who died in Manhattan was a 33-year-old named Ju Cong Wu. He fell nine stories down the elevator shaft. This is the second death to happen on this project, Sam Chang McSam Hotel Group, in the past five years.
