At approximately 4:30 p.m. on August 26, 2008, an employee, a self-employed window washer was performing his quarterly cleaning of the double hung windows of a co-op unit owner. He was using a positioning belt and fell from the 12 story because the seven inch anchor bolts failed. He was pronounced dead on the scene. It appears that the anchor bolts may have been inadvertently cut during a recent unit window replacement.
