A Staten Island father of 3 was crushed to death by a sewer pipe last week on Governors Island. Abbas Behnam-Bakhsh, 55, was helping unload the pipe from a delivery truck when the harness used to hoist it off a delivery truck snapped.
Carp Construction, the Staten Island company contracted to do the job, has refused to comment. This is because as general contractor of the project, they are 100% liable for this worker’s death.
This accident was avoidable and should never have happened. Had the hoisting apparatus been in working order, these three children would not be fatherless.
