Workers Stuck On FiDi Building's Scaffolding, FDNY Says

The Patch - October 01, 2019

FINANCIAL DISTRICT, NY — Two construction workers became stuck on the eighth floor of scaffolding at a Financial District building Monday afternoon, an FDNY spokesman said.

The workers were brought down and emergency medical personnel were evaluating them for injuries after emergency responders flooded the streets in front of 60 Wall St. about 12:50 p.m., according to the spokesman and video from the scaffolding incident. No injuries had been reported as of 1:30 p.m.

Scaffolding on the eighth floor was being secured at the 47-story office building, the FDNY spokesman said.

Department of Buildings records show the NYPD called for an inspection after debris fell from the building. A witness wrote on Twitter that glass fell from a window at the Deutsche Bank tower, but the Fire Department was not able to immediately confirm whether that was the case.
