November 9, 2011 – According to a news report from My Fox New York, a construction worker died after a building in the Bronx collapsed. The fatal work accident occurred on Saturday, October 29, at approximately 12 p.m. The construction worker, 51-year-old Muhamed Kebbeh, was rescued by firefighters after a 2-story building that was under renovation fell. While some witnesses believed the collapse was due to the weather, the FDNY indicates it was not; however, no further information on the potential cause has yet been released. Kebbeh had been trapped in the rubble when firefighters rescued him. He was then immediately transported to Jacobi Medical Center. Later, at the hospital, he died from his injuries. Every day construction workers take a chance of facing a life-threatening injury while working, which is why they should be protected under their employers.
