A construction worker fell to his death Friday at a SoHo construction site where rare rental units are being built above a ground-floor retail space.

Officials and witnesses said the man fell from the fourth floor to the third floor along with several girders and hit his head shortly after 2:30 p.m.




He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

“The medic tried to go up in a tower ladder,” said Assane Fall, a private sanitation worker who witnessed the rescue attempt. “They brought (the worker) down in a basket. He was in bad shape. He was bleeding from the head when they put him in the ambulance.”

Workers have completed three stories of the planned seven-story building at the corner of Canal and Greene streets, where 30 loft-inspired luxury apartments are being planned from the second to the sixth floors.

The building is slated to be completed some time next year.
