Highland Hills, OH—A construction worker fatally fell three stores at Cuyahoga Community College Eastern Campus in Highland Hills. The construction accident happened while the man was working on a building at the community college just before 9 a.m., on Monday, January 17, 2011, as reported by FOX8.

The Cuyahoga County Coroner’s office reported that construction worker Craig Macoviak, 45, of Broadview Heights, was working in a bucket lift when he suddenly fell three stories. It was not reported what caused Macoviak to fall, but he was reportedly working with a crew who were tearing down a section of an on-campus building.

Responding emergency medical crews rushed Macoviak from the scene of the accident to South Pointe Hospital for treatment. Doctors later pronounced him dead.

A construction company unaffiliated with the college employed Macoviak.

A full investigation is underway. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) are expected to investigate the fatal construction accident.
