Bronx, New York (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
A 62-year old construction worker suffered a tragic accident while working at a Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority facility. According to a CBS New York report released on August 5th at 8:08pm, the worker was crushed by a crate he was unloading from a truck at approximately 8:00 AM on Tuesday, August 5th.
“This accident was tragic and my sympathy goes out to his entire family," said Bronx Accident Attorney Steven Schwartzapfel. "As is common in many construction accidents, the possibility exists that there was a failure to have provided the construction worker with the appropriate equipment, safety devices and protection so he could have safely unloaded the crate.”
Metropolitan Transportation Authority Spokesperson Adam Lisberg explained to NY1 on August 5th at 2:17pm that "We had a contractor who was working on a project … and he was unfortunately killed as the piece of equipment fell."
