As we have discussed often on our blog, New York construction workers often face difficult and dangerous tasks. What are everyday experiences for them might be considered daredevil activities for the rest of us. When a worker is killed in a construction accident, it makes us realize just how dangerous these types of jobs are.
A worker was killed in Oswego County recently when he fell about 24 feet to the ground while working at a construction site at a car dealership. The 23-year-old man was installing roofing material on the building that was under construction when a strong gust of wind knocked him and part of the roofing material to the ground.
