DYKER HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (PIX11) — Students at a Brooklyn middle school are being relocated Tuesday, kicked out of their classrooms after a window collapsed during construction, officials said.

Construction work has been underway at Dyker Heights Intermediate School, located at 8010 12th Ave. On Monday, a window collapsed into a classroom and forced the issuance of a vacate order.
