Every day, millions of workers report to their jobs in the Chicago area. Focusing on the tasks at hand that day, most people never contemplate being involved in a fatal work-related accident. Unfortunately these accidents happen on a regular basis. One such accident recently left a worker dead after falling from a rooftop at O'Hare International Airport.
The contract worker fell from the roof of Terminal 5 at the airport. According to a spokeswoman for the Chicago Department of Aviation, he fell from the terminal rooftop to a lower level in the morning hours. After the incident, the victim was transported to the Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. He passed away at the hospital following the fall.
