Flying wood from B3 could have hit pedestrians

Intersection of Dean and 6th Avenue
May 14, 2016 - 7:00pm

A resident of Dean Street and his wife were coming home last night when they witnessed wood flying off the B3 site.  They called 311 immediately and were patched through to 911.  
"My wife ...  and I were walking home just a few mins ago when luckily we noticed some wood debris get blown of the 6th Ave/ Dean St. Construction site (8th Fl). It missed us but could easily have hit someone else in the crosswalk in front of Dubai market. 
We called 311 who transferred us to 911. The police are coming now and we are filing a report."
The residents waited an hour outside and then went indoors, but the police did not come.  The resident writes: "Extremely frustrated." Today they filed a 311 complaint which is the one included with this log.
Photos of the wood and the source of the wood are attached.
