BROOKLYN - A search is under way for the family of a man killed in a partial building collapse in Fort Greene on Monday.

Officials say Winston Gillett died, and another construction worker was critically injured, after falling 30 feet while loading concrete blocks onto the top floor of a four-story building. The 67-year-old was last known to live in Bushwick.

Brooklyn Council member Letitia James says Gillett's family has not yet come forward and is asking anyone who recognizes him to come forward so that his loved ones can be notified.
