Man falls from roof to his death

A 36 year-old construction worker died earlier this week after he fell more than fifty feet from a roof after installing sheeting.

The man was working on a new sports complex when investigators believe a gust of wind caused him to lose his balance. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate the construction site. Witnesses say they saw the man not wearing safety harnesses or straps while on the roof.

Emergency responders say the man was unresponsive when they arrived. The site has been shut down for the investigation.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the victim.
