Worker injured at Yeshiva construction site

A 36-year-old construction worker was rushed to the hospital Tuesday after falling 30 feet into the basement of a Yeshiva being constructed in Kensington.

Although the construction crew scrambled into action, it took rescuers up to 30 minutes to bring worker Shmuli Silber out of the dark pit he found himself falling into on Elmwood Avenue between Ocean Parkway and East 3rd Street

Silber was rushed to Maimonides Medical Center, where he was listed in critical but stable condition as of press time.

City Department of Buildings inspectors slapped a partial stop work order on the site, allowing no activity other than the installation of the missing safety guard rails that would have saved Silber from injury.
