One person died and four others were injured in the Brighton Beach building collapse yesterday, which preliminary reports suggest occurred as construction workers poured concrete on the upper levels before having done the lower levels.
We brought you on-scene play-by-play yesterday, as emergency responders dug into the wreckage and ultimately secured the site. The Department of Buildings is still investigating the incident, but a Stop Work Order has been put into effect, and safety violations have been issued.
We managed to get some photos up yesterday, but here’s our collection of photos and videos from our team and Sheepshead Bites readers.
