A home under construction at 40 Frank Court in the Gerritsen Beach neighborhood of Brooklyn collapsed killing a construction worker. Three of the workers were performing work on the roof while Santos Garcia, 25, was climbing a ladder alongside the building as the structure collapsed. He was rescued by emergency responders but died shortly after arriving at Lutheran Medical Center. The home was undergoing a second story addition. The Department of Buildings is currently investigating.
