A 33yr old man who volunteered to help remove debris at a construction site belonging to the Church of God of Prophecy at 463 Rutland Road in Brooklyn was seriously injured after the section he was standing on collapsed.
The man fell straight through to the basement level and was buried by approximately six feet of debris.
It took more than one hundred firefighters, with some assistance from a Con Edison crew using a vacuum truck, just over one hour to free him from beneath the rubble.
The injured man was rushed to Kings County Hospital and was expected to survive his harrowing ordeal. It is unclear at this time whether proper permits were in place for work at the site, or whether any violations or Stop Work orders have been issued.
