Worker Seriously Injured in Partial Building Collapse

LNM,

On Wednesday afternoon, a three-story parking garage under demolition partially collapsed on the west side of Manhattan. One person was severely injured, but the injuries were not life-threatening, according to EMS. The building, located at 642 W. 57th St, which is covered in scaffolding, collapsed around 2:30 p.m. Officials say, approximately 16 construction workers were inside the building when it collapsed.

Fortunately, no one appears to be missing and officials do not believe that anyone was on the sidewalks at the time of collapse. Several vehicles and school buses were damaged. When the collapse happened, a school bus driver was sleeping in a parked school bus right outside the building. But, he was not injured and no children were on the bus. The driver said, “I was laying in the bus taking a nap. I heard a large noise when the collapse happened.” West 57th Street is closed between 11th and 12th Avenues.
