Contractor dies in fall at Massachusetts General Hospital
BOSTON -- A man died after a fall at Massachusetts General Hospital on Monday. The hospital confirmed the accidental death of a contractor but did not release the man's identity.
"All of a sudden out of nowhere all these trucks and stuff, all these first responders, the whole street blocked off. Everybody who was coming out of the building didn't seem to have much of an idea what was going on," said Ezkia Weeks. He was serving lunch from his food truck when he thought he heard a thud.
"Don't know what happened but sounds like something really sad," he continued.
Investigators said the man fell about eight floors and landed on a lower rooftop of the building.
It's unclear what led up to the deadly fall.
Part of Blossom Street was shut down for most of the afternoon as crews responded.
OSHA is also investigating.
