A worker is injured after a building being demolished in midtown Manhattan partially collapsed on Wednesday.
The building is located on West 57th St. and 11th Ave.
A worker at the scene told BuzzFeed News that the team with Breeze Demolition was working on a demolition of a four-story building when the incident occurred.
The workers had demolished two of the stories and were working on a third when the building partially collapsed.
The worker who was demolishing the third floor was injured in the collapse, the other worker said. He said the man's face got "all messed up," but he is mostly fine.
Everyone else working on the project was not injured.
People at the scene reported that many fire and police officials responded to the collapse.
The NYPD told BuzzFeed News that everyone who was at the building is accounted for, but they will search it just in case.
