Alvaro Navarro, 50, was working on scaffolding on the third floor of the Decoplage condominium building at 100 Lincoln Road when the workplace fatality occurred. Police say the man fell three stories off of the scaffolding to the ground.
Local10 reports that the worker was critically injured in the fall and was immediately taken to Ryder Trauma Center. Unfortunately, Navarro would later die from his injuries.
Officials are unsure what caused the man to fall from the structure, reports Local10. The investigation has been taken over by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Work at the building was put on hold while OSHA investigated the fatal incident.
Navarro was employed by Coast to Coast General Contractors, according to Local10. The company is working with state and federal investigators to determine the cause of the accident.
