Construction Worker Falls to His Death at Clinton Hill Site

New, 3 comments

The construction foreman on a Brooklyn project fell to his death yesterday afternoon, The Daily News reports. Luis Zaruma fell from the fifth floor of an under-construction residential project on Bedford Avenue in Clinton Hill. A tipster tells us the project in question was 892 Bedford Avenue (seen in the Google Street view shot at right), and Brooklyn 11211 agrees. A Department of Buildings complaint filed yesterday for 892 Bedford says a construction worker fell from a third-floor steel beam inside the building. A DOB spokesperson told the Daily News that Zaruma was not wearing a safety harness, though officials said they're still investigating the cause of the accident.
