NEW YORK -- A 31-year-old Hawthorne man died Wednesday while working at a water treatment facility in Brooklyn, according to News 12.

Michael Buffamante worked at the site as a contractor for the Department of Environmental Protection, according to News 12, which reported that he was part of a team completing upgrades to the water treatment system.

The circumstances of the fall were still unclear, but authorities said Buffamante plunged into a 35-foot-deep tank at the worksite on Wednesday, according to News 12, which reported that the FDNY later recovered his body from the tank bottom.
