2008_07_bricks.jpgA woman walking on 8th Avenue near 45th Street in Midtown Manhattan was hit on the head by a falling brick. WABC 7 reports the victim, a 17-year-old, was taken to St. Vincent's in stable condition around 8 a.m. Also, one business owner claims a construction worker tried to clean up the bricks, rather than help the victim: "The crowd screamed at him and told him to leave the bricks because he was trying to move the evidence." Another area resident said he's seen falling bricks and other residents say they avoid walking under the scaffolding.
