Teen dies after falling into cesspool
A 17-year-old worker at a Smithtown Dunkin' Donuts died Sunday after falling into an open cesspool behind the store.
Amiri Zeqiri, of Central Islip, was taking out the garbage at around 9 p.m. when he fell into the uncovered manhole.
Authorities say Amiri's cousin ran to get help, but Amiri was no longer visible by the time he returned. Police pulled the teen from the cesspool and took him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Suffolk police say the building's landlord, Jagir Singh, has been issued multiple violations for potholes and debris. Sing could face criminal charges, according to police.
