Six hard hats were sent to the hospital after suffering minor injuries while working on a Rabsky Group project in Queens.

The accident took place around 11 a.m. on Monday at 42-20 27th Street in Long Island City, when part of the eighth floor fell onto the seventh floor, hours after concrete had been poured, according to DNAinfo.

The workers suffered injuries to their backs, arms and legs and were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment, but all were in stable condition, the news website reported. The Department of Buildings has stopped construction at the site pending a full investigation of the incident.

The Rabsky Group has been constructing an 18-story, 140,000-square-foot building at the site with about 3,000 square feet of commercial space. The company, led by Simon Dushinsky and Isaac Rabinowitz, in November 2015 upped the unit count from 99 units to 195 apartments.

Rabsky is one of the largest residential developers in Queens and Brooklyn. The company’s other major projects include a redevelopment of the Rheingold Brewery in Bushwick and a building at 249 Wallabout Street in Williamsburg that would include more than 1,500 units. Earlier this month, the company went into contract on a 2.65-acre development site along the Williamsburg waterfront for $50 million. [DNAinfo] –Eddie Small
