A 29-year-old worker died after he fell from the seventh floor of the BrickellHouse construction site Monday morning, police said.
Corence Lawrence Gumbs was working on the seventh floor when he fell at about 7:15 a.m. The details of the fall at 1300 Brickell Bay Dr. are still under investigation.
Gumbs was not speaking and breathing very slowly when Miami Fire Rescue arrived, said spokesman Lt. Ignatius Carroll.
“The situation was pretty bad,” he said.
Gumbs was taken to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition and he later died there.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Mr. Gumbs following this week’s tragic accident,” said a statement from BrickellHouse. “The matter is being investigated by the proper authorities and our team is cooperating in that process.
“We treat workplace safety with the utmost importance and will work with officials to determine the cause of the accident in a timely manner.”
