A worker at The Door restaurant in South Jamaica was killed Monday morning in an accident involving a lift or dumbwaiter in the basement.
The popular Caribbean restaurant is located at 163-07 Baisley Blvd. Published reports said the worker, whose name has not been released, was 67 years old.
Multiple city agencies are investigating, including the NYPD, FDNY and Department of Buildings.
The Chronicle was attempting to determine on Monday afternoon if the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, more commonly known as OSHA, was involved yet.
A message on the restaurant’s answering machine on Monday afternoon said the business was closed, but that it intended to reopen Tuesday morning.
