The recent boom collapse in Manhattan, New York resulted in the death of Michael Simermeyer. Ironically, the same building inspector, Patrick McGarrigle, on site who failed to check a cable involved in the accident was also connected with an fatal crane accident in 2008.
A 23-year-old male construction worker was killed yesterday when he was crushed by a 2,000-pound concrete slab while working to demolish the old Martin Luther King Jr. Bridge.
