Construction Worker Slips Off Roof in Hurricane Sandy

A man from Caldwell fell 20 feet in North Caldwell Monday trying to secure a construction project.

A construction worker fell off a second-story roof in North Caldwell Monday while trying to secure a project from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

Police say a 44-year-old man from Caldwell has been transported to St. Joseph's Medical Center in Paterson after he slipped and fell about 20 feet.

The man was working to secure a construction project at his client's home on Cambridge Road.

The accident happened at about 3 p.m. during wet and windy conditions. But Police Chief Mark Deuer said it is believed the man slipped and was not blown off the roof.

His injuries are not life-threatening, Deuer said.

Good thing the West Essex First Aid Squad has crews ready and was able to transport this guy. Hope he's ok. WEFAS volunteers risking their lives to help yours during this Hurricane.
