Aftermath at the Carlton Mews Collapse Site


This was the scene this morning at the Carlton Mews Townhouse project, a day after one of the townhouses collapsed, killing one construction worker. Today workers were carefully removing the collapsed debris from the townhouse frame. Otherwise, as the NY Post wrote this morning, DOB officials issued a full stop-work order at the site while they investigate. The collapse happened after the third story of the building was overloaded with cinder blocks. Two workers, William Gillett, 67, and Clayton LaBoard, 43, fell to the basement and were covered by debris. Gillett passed away and, as of yesterday, LaBoard was in critical condition.
