At least four people were injured during a construction accident at SL Green’s 331 Madison Avenue, the site where the company’s massive One Vanderbilt is scheduled to rise, on Tuesday morning.

The accident happened at 43rd Street and Madison Avenue around 10 a.m., Channel 7 reported. A chandelier at the site fell, injuring the four men.

“During interior demolition at 331 Madison Avenue this morning, four workers were injured and taken to Bellevue Hospital. The work was being performed by Waldorf Demolition with Tishman Construction acting as construction manager, and there was a licensed site safety manager present,” SL Green responded through a spokesperson. “Safety is our top priority; we’re continuing to monitor the workers’ status and we will release information as soon as it’s available.”

The four injured workers were reportedly conscious and talking.

Yesterday, a construction worker at the former Pastis site at 19 Ninth Avenue in the Meatpacking District died after being buried in dirt while on the job. [ABC7] — Claire Moses
