A New Jersey man delivering sheet rock to a construction site was killed Monday when a tape measure fell fifty stories and hit him on the head.
The 1-pound tape measure became dislodged from the belt of a worker on the 50th floor and struck construction equipment about 10 to 15 feet from the ground. It then ricocheted and struck a 58 year old man in the head. The man was not wearing his hard hat at the time, and unfortunately lost his life shortly after the accident occurred.
Being on a construction site can be extremely dangerous, and you never know when some freak accident can occur and potentially cause severe damage or even result in death. Please take extra precautions next time you are working on or even near a construction site.
