Construction worker fatally hit by device in New York

A hardhat was killed when a piece of an excavator fell on him at a Brooklyn site Monday morning, police officers said.

The 46-year-old construction worker was standing at the construction site at 1 Java St. in Greenpoint around 9:10 a.m. when the piece of equipment fell on him, authorities said.

He suffered severe body trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The 728,000-square-foot site occupies an entire block and “is intended to be a resilient, mixed-use development of over 800 residential rental units,” according to the profile on its developer’s website, Lendlease.

The worker was fatally struck by a heavy piece of machinery at 1 Java Street in Greenpoint around 9:10 a.m., police officers said.
