Man Dies After Falling From Roof In Southern Minn.

LAKE CRYSTAL, Minn. (AP) — A 41-year-old man is dead after falling off the roof of a one-story home in southern Minnesota.

Sheriff’s deputies and an ambulance were called Monday morning after John Simek of Warsaw, Minn., fell in rural Lake Crystal.

The Blue Earth County sheriff’s office says Simek stopped breathing and had no heartbeat. Attempts were made to revive him, but he died at the scene.

The Journal of New Ulm reports deputies say Simek had been hired to re-roof a residence when he fell to the ground.
