THE BRONX (PIX11) — A 9-year-old boy was found dead atop scaffolding beneath a Bronx high-rise Wednesday evening, authorities said.

Sidy Fofana’s body was discovered about 5 p.m. Wednesday at 20 Richman Plaza, where the boy lives, NYPD said.

A neighbor made the grisly discovery after he heard a loud bang, then called police.

Fofana was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is unclear how the boy died or whether he fell, jumped or was pushed from the high-rise apartment building, which has 30 floors.

The cause and circumstances of the boy’s  death is under investigation.
