Around 10:40 a.m. at 89 Forest Hills St. Two workers were building a third-floor rear porch when it collapsed onto the second-floor porch.

One worker died, the other was less seriously injured.

In addition to firefighters and paramedics, ISD and OSHA were also called in.

NOTE: Thanks to the city data portal, Brian Nailer was able to pull up the record on the building permit pulled for the work (attached below), which he notes used the short form, which is not supposed to be used for structural work
