MANHATTAN — A worker was hurt after a wall collapsed in the Jacob Javits Convention Center Wednesday, according to the FDNY.
The partition wall, which an FDNY spokesman said was small, fell onto the worker at 11:16 a.m.
Other workers at the center, on 11th Avenue between 34th and 38th Street, called an ambulance. It was unknown how badly the person was hurt.
Another Javits staff member told DNAinfo the wall was quarter-of-an-inch thick and made of plywood.
The injured man, who is a carpenter, hurt his leg, his colleague said.
