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.
Philip Hopkins, 55, of Willimantic was pronounced dead shortly after 4 a.m. after being crushed beneath a metal bin.
