? Three people were injured after scaffolding fell from the side of a building on East 143rd Street Monday.

The incident occurred after 7 a.m. Monday morning. Officials say one of the victims is in serious condition.

The Department of Building charged the New York Housing Authority with two violations for not maintaining the scaffolding properly. A Housing Authority representative says the contractor is re-installing bolts that were not in place.
