We are devastated to learn that a wall collapse at 60 Norfolk has killed one person and left another individual injured. The accident occurred at the former site of Beth Hamedrash Hagodol Synagogue.
The victims of the wall collapse are construction workers who were working to restore the site and transform it into a mixed use hub for our community.
The loss of the Beth Hamedrash Hagodol Synagogue was a tremendous tragedy to our community. It is devastating to hear that another tragedy at this site has occurred.
Our community will continue to keep the victims and the families of the victims in our hearts through this tough time.
We are in contact with the NYPD and will update as more information becomes available.
