A construction worker died Monday after falling off a roof in Pulaski.
State Police say 23-year-old Kyle M. Brown of East Road in Turin was installing metal roofing at the F.X. Caprara construction site on State Route 13. A gust of wind blew Brown and a piece of roofing off the structure. The accident happened around 2:00 in the afternoon.
Police say Brown fell 24 feet. He was taken by ambulance to Upstate Medical Center, and died from his injuries around 5:15 p.m. Troopers say Brown worked for MTL Design in Watertown.
Winds gusted to more than 40 mph in some parts of Central New York on Monday.
State Police did not release Brown's name until Tuesday afternoon while they attempted to notify his family.
