A construction worker fell to his death in Manhattan Monday afternoon.

Authorities say the man fell 10 stories, from the roof of a Midtown office building onto some scaffolding about 25 feet above the sidewalk.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident happened at approximately 3:30 p.m. Monday.

The building is on the south side of West 33rd Street between Ninth Avenue and 10th Avenue, and is home to several major construction projects.

Police diverted street traffic after the incident and are investigating the cause of the fall.
