A 50-year-old construction worker fell several stories to his death at a Brighton Beach development site yesterday.

Vidal Sanchez-Roman was working at 360 Neptune Avenue when he fell, in what has initially been determined to be an accident. Medical examiners declared him dead at the scene. An investigation is still ongoing.

Sanchez-Roman, a Brooklyn resident, fell four stories, according to News 12 Brooklyn, though other reports have said six stories. The accident happened just after 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

The accident is the latest in a string of construction-related tragedies this year, including the death of a passerby at Rudin Management’s Greenwich Lane in March and the death of a construction worker at Greenland Forest City Parters’ Barclays Center in February.
