Worker killed at CSU construction site

Cleveland State University

(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.
