A young construction worker fell to his death while doing work on One Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights.

The 23-year-old worker was only on the job for a week, NBC 4 New York reported. He fell from the roof of the 13-story luxury building.

He had died by the time authorities arrived and his identity hasn’t been released, the report said. The investigation is ongoing. According to the Department of Buildings, two workers were laying bricks under the water tower when the 23-year-old fell.
