This morning, two workers fell from window washing scaffolding set up around a 40-story building at 265 East 66th Street between Second and Third Avenue. It's unclear how high the workers were, but they fell onto the roof of a neighboring 6-story building. WNBC reports one of the workers is dead and one is in critical condition. Another report said the two workers were brothers.
Traffic is backed up on Second and Third Avenues with emergency vehicles. WABC 7 reminds that 265 East 66th was "the subject of a 1988 law suit where nearly a third of the 300 tenants held a rent strike."
