On Monday, we reported a tip we got about a bunch of fire trucks showing up at the Forte Condo site and rumor of an injured worker. We are sad to report that we just received word that one worker was, in fact, killed. John Martinez, 46, fell three floors to his death at 9:19 a.m. on February 5. A Partial Stop Work Order that has been put in place states that there was “no protection in hoist area on ground floor. Door openings at hoist not secured.” As we understand, work is being allowed to continue on the lower floors. Very sad indeed.
