Construction Accident In Queens

A construction worker in New York fell 25 feet into a trench of mud this week and it took more than three hours to remove him.

According to a New York Times report, the 35-year-old man was working at a Queens construction site Tuesday when he fell into the trench. Details on how he fell into the mud trench were not available. The construction site was located at 119-02 83rd Ave.

The man’s co-workers attempted for an hour to free him from the mud but were unable and ultimately called the authorities. It took rescue crews two more hours to get the man out of the mud. He was then taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, authorities told The New York Times. One witness said about 50 men tried to remove the trapped man.

Questions Being Raised

There are doubts on whether or not workers were even allowed at the construction site this week. A halt-work order had been issued for this construction area back in February, the New York Times reports. One worker at the site “insisted” on not giving his name to a reporter because he “was not authorized” to speak to the press.

This is just the latest in a series of accidents at construction sites around New York. When details of this incident are released, it will be known whether proper safety precautions were taken to ensure someone working there wasn’t at risk of suffering serious injuries or dying.

In fact, as the New York Times notes, the incident this week nearly mirrors one from this past winter when a worker at a Manhattan subway project had gotten stuck in mud. It took several hours and some heavy machinery to eventually free that trapped victim.
