At the location, investigators discovered the man’s brother, who informed police that his brother had a history of mental illness and had contacted him after the fall trapped him.
On Sunday morning, the victim was allegedly ascending a ladder of a water shaft along a Queen’s highway.
Media reported, according to FDNY Special Operations Chief Patrick Ginty, “You would never find this place. It was in the middle of nowhere, an old water shaft with a stream running down the bottom of it.”
Added, “Just an open shaft.”
