Construction worker falls to death in Cramerton

The North Carolina Department of Labor is looking into the death of Javier Antonio Gomez-Gonzales, 49 from Charlotte, who died at a construction site in Cramerton.

Gomez-Gonzales was working for Baja Exterior of Stanley on a house construction site when he fell from the roof to his death, according to a statement from the Cramerton Police Department.

Baja Exterior was not available for immediate comment.

The police responded along with Emergency Medical Services. Chief Greg Ratchford in a press release said there is no reason to suspect the death was any more than an accident.

The United States Department of Safety says falling is one of the most common fatalities in construction work.
