As DNAinfo first reported Wednesday afternoon, a worker at the site of the demolition of 9-17 Second Avenue suffered a leg injury after being struck by falling debris. Witnesses had said the injury did not appear to be serious.
City inspectors arrived on the scene Wednesday afternoon...
According to the DOB: "Hazardous conditions observed at site."
As you can see, the DOB says that a 16-by-20-foot piece of debris struck the worker. "STOP ALL WORK."
The buildings — including the Mars Bar space — are being demolished to make way for a 12-story apartment complex.
