These stories are interesting. A worker fell off the Throgs Neck Bridge and died. A worker died while building the new 7 train extension. There was a construction accident in Gerritsen Beach (part of Brooklyn). A navy plane crashed in Virginia.
The number of “construction accidents” is increasing. There’s no excuse for that.
I was really disgusted by this story. People are calling the navy plane crash a “Good Friday Miracle”, which is disgusting. There’s nothing special about a plane crashing into a building. It’s fortunate that nobody was killed, and maybe the pilot steered the crashing plane to minimize damage. It’s offensive to call it a “miracle”.
It’s a symptom of a collapsing economy. Basic skills are being lost, such as “Do construction without any fatalities.”
