High winds tore down scaffolding at an under-construction condo building in Park Slope Sunday afternoon, injuring three people.

The scaffolding crashed down from the Parlour Condominiums site and fell into an open-air patio space below, where it smashed through a glass astrium, according to CBS New York. One victim suffered serious head injuries and went to the hospital.

Parts of the scaffolding were dismantled later on Sunday, and the Department of Buildings is investigating the incident.

Parlour, at 243 Fourth Avenue, was No. 10 on The Real Deal’s list of most valuable Brooklyn condo filings in 2018 with a projected sellout of $54.6 million. Brodmore Management took over the site from landlord Haysha Deitsch.

The general contractor on the site has had 12 construction safety violations this year, and last month, the DOB had issued the contractor four construction violations for not safeguarding the construction site properly and not keeping the scaffolding up to code. [CBS New York] – Eddie Small
