A new report reveals serious safety violations at a Tribeca garage where a worker drowned during Sandy.

Federal investigators say exit doors in the garage were locked — or improperly propped open — when the storm struck the city in October.

Garage worker Anthony Narh was unable to escape when water filled the underground lot.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined the garage owner $56,000 and ordered him to correct the violations.
