Deaths at 21 Rio Construciton Site

Yesterday afternoon, 3 construction workers died at the 21 Rio high rise construction site when a scaffolding collapsed, sending the three men 11 stories down to their deaths. I have been photographing a time lapse of the construction of this building since the beginning of 2008 (it is right down the street from my former home, the 21st Street Co-op) and was there yesterday taking my daily photographs 30 minutes before this tragedy occurred. It's just strange to think had I been there a little later than I was, I would have witnessed and captured the horrific scene. My thoughts go out to the victims and their families...
