Building Façade Accident in Manhattan Third in Just two Days

A building façade accident in Manhattan was the third such incident in just two days. All three accidents in New York City happened less than a week after the city's Department of Buildings announced that they would be stepping up façade inspections in the wake of a fatal incident during which a woman was killed by part of a façade that fell from a high rise. Not only will the agency inspect over 1,300 facades, now, instead of simple visual inspections, it will require an engineer to use scaffolding in some instances to verify the safety of suspect construction.

Woman Killed in Façade Accident in New York City Spurs City Inspectors into Action

A 60-year-old woman was strolling down the street in early December when she was killed in a terrifying accident. The victim was struck by a massive piece of building façade that broke free from a Manhattan high-rise. She was killed immediately and although EMTs arrived within minutes, there was nothing they could do. While façade accidents in New York City aren't common, they do occur multiple times per year. In most of these accidents, it is only the nearby parked cars that are damaged or crushed.
