Construction Worker Dies After Falling From Scaffolding

May 14, 2015

A 25-year-old construction worker fell from scaffolding and died at the site of a Bronx public housing development, NY police said.

Dominick Deluca fell from scaffolding, 15 feet above the ground, and hit his head on the pavement. Deluca was unconscious and suffered severe head trauma when responding officers arrived. He was later pronounced dead at Bronx Lebanon Hospital.

The New York Department of Buildings issued a violation against the city-owned building after a complaint was made that the scaffolding “does not meet building safety code standards,” records show.
