Oswego, NY — A construction accident killed a worker at SUNY Oswego on Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, when he fell while installing metal roof decking. The fatal construction accident occurred on a new connector between Park and Wilber halls around 8:25 a.m., reports Oswegocountytoday.com.

According to reports, ironworker Lateef Haskins, 37, of Liverpool, was installing the metal roof decking when he fell for unknown reasons.

Responding emergency crews pronounced Haskins dead about an hour after the accident occurred.

“We extend our deep condolences to his family and his co-workers,” SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley said. “It’s a tragic accident, unprecedented over the years of recent major construction at our college.”

SUNY Oswego has said they will conduct a comprehensive review of safety on campus following the death. All campus construction projects have since been halted until reviews are completed.

Investigations into the fatal construction accident are underway.
