Another construction tragedy recently occurred in New York City.  At a Bed-Stuy construction site, a cinder block wall collapsed killing a 19-year-old construction worker and injuring two others.  At the site, a one-story commercial building was being converted into a five-story structure that would also include residential units.  The cinder wall was designed to hold back soil at the bottom of the building, but was not properly stabilized.
