MANHATTAN - An investigation led by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is under way to see if federal safety standards were violated when a Bronx man was killed at a parking garage during Sandy.

Relatives of Anthony Narh, 58, say he reported to work at the Empire Parking Garage located on the border of Zone A, a high-risk flooding zone that was under mandatory evacuation by the city. As the Tribeca garage flooded, Narh took refuge in an SUV, where he drowned. Narh's family says the garage should have had him stay home.

Narh's family says the parking garage never apologized for his death. If OSHA finds any safety violations, the garage could be fined.
