One year ago: Stunned rescue workers continued to search for bodies in the World Trade Center's smoking rubble a day after a terrorist attack that shut down the financial capital, badly damaged the Pentagon and left thousands dead. NEW YORK Wind sends debris crashing down on Columbus Circle NEW YORK (AP) A construction worker was critically injured Wednesday afternoon when gusting winds blew a piece of plywood off the AOL Time Warner Center under construction in Columbus Circle, authorities said. Two passers-by suffered minor injuries. The 36-year-old carpenter was undergoing surgery for head trauma at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Medical Center after the accident, said hospital spokesman Mike Quane. The man, who was working on the site, was struck in the head by the falling wood. The accident occurred outside the building, under construction at 10 Columbus Circle, said Diane Kramer, of the city buildings department. Winds at neighboring Central Park were measured at up to 31 mph. "It looks like because of the windy conditions, the wood blew off the building," Kramer said. As a safety precaution, several surrounding blocks were closed, said Mary Costello, vice president of corporate commii-nications for Bovis Land Lea3e: the building's construction management company. At each corner, small groups of people attempted to negotiate their ways to their homes and , offices past yellow police, tapes fluttering in the gusting wind. To prevent injury from falling debris to passengers entering the Columbus Circle subway station, NYC Transit began bypassing the station in both directions at 1:40 p.m. on the A, B, C, D and' Nos. 1 and 2 lines. The 2.1 million-square-foot AOL complex will eventually' become the media giant's new headquarters and the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center. 1 CORRECTIONS Richard Philius of Irvington, who was involved in a fatal mini-van accident in Morris Township last December, remains an employee of St. Clare's Hospital, as correctly reported in a story Wednesday.
