    Condo worker killed in fall - BY ANDRES AMERIKANER, Miami Herald
    The man, a 27-year-old safety foreman, plunged about 140 feet at the Infinity at Brickell Condos, on Southwest 13th Street near South Miami Avenue, around 1 p.m, police said. He was standing on a platform that may have moved out too quickly, causing him to lose his balance, said Ignatius Carroll, a spokesman for Miami Fire Rescue. He fell to the 11th floor, where he hit a cast-iron frame used to pour concrete in columns.
