(Cleveland) - A falling object at a construction site struck and killed a man at Cleveland State University.
Cleveland Police and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office said the 56-year-old man was killed Wednesday afternoon at the site at CSU.
Gilbane Building Company is in charge of the construction site.
Company spokesman Wes Cotter said a pipefitter working on the Fenn Hall renovation was struck by "a piece of material" that fell from the building shortly after 2 p.m.
Cotter says the company is cooperating with police and trying to determine if there are ways to prevent anything similar from happening in the future.
