Former U.S. Embassy Property Collapse in London Kills Worker

A building on London’s most expensive square that used to belong to the U.S. embassy partly collapsed yesterday, killing a 33 year-old man who was working on the site.

A 29 year-old worker suffered minor injuries in the accident at the Grosvenor Square site and has been discharged from a hospital, the Metropolitan Police said in an e-mailed statement today. Both men were on the building’s second floor when it collapsed, according to the statement. Work on the project has been suspended, the construction company carrying out the job said.
