Scaffolding collapse

Reports say the man started working at the site two weeks ago after losing his last construction job because of the pandemic.
The man was working at a residential co-op building at 136 East 36th Street, fire officials said.
A former warehouse and construction site collapsed in Williamsburg on Wednesday morning, raining bricks and scaffolding onto the street and wrecking a few cars parked below.
A scaffolding collapse in Manhattan left a window-washer stranded sixteen stories above the ground on Monday.
Photographs show workers frantically trying to shore up the scaffolding.
The child's mother said, "I heard a loud bang and a plank was over her whole body."
Thankfully, no one was injured.
