A construction worker in Brooklyn who was reportedly brutally beaten into a coma on his way to his construction job by New York thugs has died.

Moses James, 58, was reportedly discovered lying unresponsive on the ground near Belmont Avenue and Watkins Street in Brownsville at about 4:30 a.m on Monday, Sept. 13, last week. He was found suffering from serious wounds and severe trauma to his head.

James was immediately rushed to Brookdale University Hospital in critical condition. After undergoing treatment for four days, James succumbed to his wounds on Friday, Sept. 17, Daily News reported.

Investigators believe that James was pummeled by a group of thugs who immediately fled the scene after attacking him.

“He was on his way to work that morning,” Felicia James, James' sister said. “He was working on some construction for housing. Maybe they were trying to rob him or something.”

James' death has been declared a homicide by the investigators.

“He had injuries to his head, his face, and I’m quite sure there were injuries to his body as well because of what they said occurred,” Melvina Haynes, James' other sister said. “How could a human being have that much anger to do that to someone, and then walk around? That means that you don’t have a conscience.”

James’ two sisters Felicia and Haynes visited him frequently at the hospital and prayed for him to come out of his coma and recover.

“I think that they deserve to be punished for the crimes that they committed. My brother didn’t deserve to lay put in the street like a dog left to die,” Felicia said.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.

“He would crack little jokes, and he was very intelligent. He just really enjoyed family, and he loved his grandchildren and his nieces and nephews,” Haynes added.

Haynes said that James would stop by to see her every day at work and used to kiss her on the forehead. Haynes said that’s what she’ll miss the most are “his laughter, his smile, and his kiss on my forehead.”

James reportedly grew up in Brownsville and East New York and leaves behind three adult children.
