Roof collapse lead to construction worker's serious injuries

The New York Department of Buildings stopped work at a Queens residential home construction site on a recent Wednesday after a construction accident occurred there on the previous day. Building materials weighing thousands of pounds fell onto three workers when the building's roof collapsed, causing serious injuries to one. The workers were members of a construction crew who were adding another story to an existing two-story residence.

The New York Department of Buildings recently issued an order to stop work on a part of the construction site on Pier 57.

In many applications, drones are used to prevent workplace accidents.
