3 injured when scaffolding collapses onto Brooklyn bar

PARK SLOPE, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Three people were injured when a scaffolding collapsed onto a bar in Brooklyn Sunday afternoon.

It happened at Mission Dolores on Fourth Avenue in Park Slope, with the impact damaging the venue's glass skylight windows.

The scaffolding apparently came off of the top of a new 12-story building next door.
One person was seriously hurt, while the other two victims had minor injuries.

The Department of Buildings issued four code violations to the people running the new building project.

"Protecting the public from unsafe construction is our top priority," the DOB said in a statement. "We will be taking all enforcement actions necessary to hold accountable those responsible for this collapse. DOB inspectors are back on site today performing a top-down inspection of the entire building to ensure that there are no other potential hazards for workers or the public."

The scaffold company for the new building project cleaned up the collapsed scaffold and were making all necessary repairs.

The DOB issued a Full Vacate Order to the bar due to the damage to the glass skylights on the roof of the building.

There is currently no further immediate hazard to the public, and the investigation is ongoing.
