Hard Hat Dies, Another Seriously Injured in an NYC Crane Mishap
New York City – A 34-year-old hard hat died and another construction worker was seriously injured during a crane mishap in a construction site at 570 Broome St. near the Holland Tunnel. The tragic incident occurred on a rainy Saturday night when a 15,000-pound counterweight became tangled in the rigging and crushed the Iraq War veteran and father of four.
