    A worker walking across wooden boards bridging the gap over an elevator shaft at a Manhattan construction site plunged four stories to his death when the boards gave way Tuesday, police said.

    The worker, a 30-year-old man, landed in 5 feet of standing water that was at the bottom of the elevator shaft after the accident in Hell's Kitchen around 12:40 p.m., police said. 

    He was taken to a hospital in serious condition, but died less than an hour later.
