A construction worker died and three others were hurt when bricks from a building façade in West Lawn fell on them.

The accident happened near 63rd and Karlov yesterday afternoon.

Ruben Cuellar watched the construction.  He said he wasn't surprised there was an accident.

"They looked like they didn't know how to do it," Cuellar said.

This morning, the building is barricaded and its owner is facing citations for having work performed by unlicensed contractors without permits.

The owner is responsible for removing all the debris left behind by the accident.
