The front of a Bushwick building fell on a pedestrian this morning.
The facade of the under-construction building at Flushing Avenue and Humboldt Street came crashing down onto the woman as she was passing by at 11:06 am today, according to reports and fire officials. FDNY personnel rushed to the scene, pulled the lady out from under fallen rubble, and transported her to Kings County Hospital Center, according to a department spokesman. The unlucky soul suffered minor injuries, according to fire officials.
The owners of Three P Drugs, a pharmacy that once operated out of the building and maintains a location a few doors down, sold the storefront at 799 Flushing Ave. last year, according to a manager. The new owner tore down the building and was constructing a new one to house a grocery store, the manager said.
Workers were in the back of the building when the collapse happened but were not hurt, according to the Fire Department.
