One construction worker is dead and another seriously injured from a construction site incident in Jamaica, Queens, according to an FDNY spokesperson.

Emergency responders were called to 147-07 94th Avenue near Sutphin Boulevard around 11:45 a.m. The FDNY spokesperson said one worker was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other was rushed to Jamaica Hospital in serious condition.

The nature of the incident was not immediately clear, but it reportedly involved falling debris. No others were injured or reported trapped, though it was not known how many other construction workers were at the site.

Video from the Citizen App shows a partially collapsed building at a site surrounded by a green construction shed. A dozen or so firefighters and a few people who appeared to be construction workers crowded onto the top of remnants of the building, the Citizen video shows.

Workers were demolishing a three-story building, which was first permitted by the city last November. The Department of Buildings inspectors arrived at the Queens site Thursday afternoon to investigate.

"Any loss of life on a construction site is a tragedy, and our engineers and inspectors are already on site conducting a thorough investigation," Department of Buildings Commissioner Melanie E. La Rocca said in a statement. "We want to assure the families of the victims that we will hold all responsible parties accountable to the fullest extent of the law."

The demolition work was led by general contractor Cole Partners, Inc. An employee who picked up the phone at the Brooklyn office said the company has no comment at this time.

The latest construction-related death comes as the number of deaths has remained the same for four years, according to a recent New York Times report. The dangers at construction sites, despite the laundry list of regulations, are more pointed for undocumented workers and nonunion job sites; between 2006 and 2016, half the workers at nonunion sites were Hispanic or Latino, according to a report cited by the Times.

Last October, a worker was killed after a wall collapsed on him at remnants of a fire-gutted synagogue on the Lower East Side. In SoHo, the counterweight of a crane fatally struck a worker in April.

The DOB says incidents and injuries overall decreased by 20 percent between 2018 and 2019. On Thursday, new rules regarding facade inspections went into effect, spurred by a woman being fatally struck by falling debris last year. The city had recently implemented requirements for workers to have 30 hours of safety training and had done surprise inspections on large job sites. On February 10th, construction safety compliance inspectors found no violations.

UPDATE, 5:35 p.m.: The DOB issued a stop work order at 147-07 94th Avenue. The investigation is ongoing, and any further enforcement actions are pending its completion.
