BRONX: Mother of Two Children Injured After High Winds Cause Scaffolding Collapse

Scaffolding Accident Seriously Injures Woman Walking With Her Children

BRONX, NEW YORK (February 24, 2017) – A woman walking down a street in the Bronx was hit in the head after scaffolding collapsed due to high winds, according to police.

Paramedics rushed to the scene of the accident and found the woman bleeding from the head.

The collapse occurred at 3160 Webster Ave. near E. 205th St. in Norwood. The woman’s two children were with here when the scaffolding collapsed, but they were not injured.

The pedestrian was rushed to to St. Barnabas Hospital and was listed in stable condition.

People who work at the agency said the scaffolding fell after workers took down a sidewalk bridge after the city experienced heavy winds.

The business that put up the scaffolding received a safety violation last August for installing equipment outside of its permit.

I Chose The Right Attorney - “Attentive, Professional and Know About the Law…”

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
