Man dies after falling from building near Space Needle
Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore says the man was taken to Harborview Medical Center although he was unconscious and had no pulse when medics reached him. The Seattle Times reports that the man died.
KING-TV reports that other construction workers say the man, in his 30s, was an iron worker and Monday was his first day on the job site. One worker suggested the man might have unclipped his safety gear to move from one place to another on the scaffolding.
The man was not immediately identified.
A state Department of Labor & Industries spokeswoman says the agency is investigating.
