A Miami construction worker reportedly died Friday afternoon (Oct. 20) after falling 10 stories.

Reports say that officials were called to the scene at around 2 p.m. Friday to what was previously the Versailles Hotel in Miami.

Miami Beach Fire Rescue officials have not identified the worker, but told Local News 10 that the man died shortly after he was put in the ambulance.

The 16-story building is unoccupied and under redevelopment to become a condominium high-rise by Argentina-based Faena Group, led by Alan Faena, who has not commented on the incident.

Police did confirm that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has taken over the investigation. According to online records, Faena Group has not had any violations over the past five years.
