The construction worker who died Friday after falling 70 feet while working on an NYU building was an avid musician and loving family man, according to his family and posts on his social media accounts.
Jaime Sillart, 56, of Bergenfield, NJ, fell from scaffolding at 19 University Place on Friday, a construction site where he had been working for a few weeks. He was taken to Belleveue Hospital where he was declared dead.
The New York Labor Law protects workers injured or killed at construction site accidents. In this case, NYU would be 100% responsible for this accident, as well as the General Contrator. Obvioiusly, Jaime Sillart was not given the proper safety protections as required under the law.
