At about 12:16 p.m., the NYPD and FDNY responded to a call alerting them to an unconscious man at 56th Road and Laurel Hill Boulevard.

The construction worker, whose identity has not been released, was working on the new $555 million project to replace the existing bridge when he fainted, according to FDNY officials.
