Woman plunges down construction-zone hole in Midtown

A woman fell through a hole in a Manhattan sidewalk Friday — just days after a man was found dead in a nearby manhole, police said.

The 50-year-old victim was spotted wailing at the bottom of the rectangular pit, roughly four feet below the intersection of West 35th Street and 8th Avenue in Midtown, according to footage obtained by The Post.

Construction crews had been working on a portion of the street when she walked by and fell into the hole at around 2:45 p.m., according to police. It wasn’t immediately clear if there was a cover over it.

The woman was rushed Bellevue Hospital in non-life-threatening condition, police said.

The incident comes three days after workers found the badly decomposed body of an apparent drunk who stumbled into a manhole — and was gnawed by rats — in Columbus Circle.
