Construction accidents: Man dies after fall from roof

This nation owes a great deal of thanks to construction workers. Not only are they responsible for creating buildings, but their jobs can often be dangerous, with a high risk of injury or even fatality. When an employer or another party fails to enact needed safety precautions, workers can get seriously hurt in construction accidents. One recent accident here in New York resulted in one worker's death after he suffered a horrific fall.
