Brooklyn, NY (July 2, 2020) – On July 1, just before 5 p.m., the New York Police and Fire Departments responded to the scene of a construction accident on Court Street.
Reports show that a three-story building located on Court Street near the intersection with Union Street collapsed to the ground. Crews received reports that people were trapped inside, which sent them to work instantly clearing the debris. After working at the site of the accident for several hours, they did not confirm any fatalities at the site of the incident. One person who was inside the building, a 52-year-old man, suffered some injuries as he escaped the collapse. The man was transported to Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.
Reports show that the city inspector reported issues with the building three weeks ago, but they went unaddressed. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
