A hospital contractor died January 9 after falling several stories from a roof at Massachusetts General Hospital, police said. The incident occurred shortly after 12:30 p.m. and the worker has not been identified by police yet. Police and OSHA were notified and  went to the scene to investigate.

“There was like, a bang,” said Ezekiah Weeks, who was working in a food truck at the time of the accident told 7 News Boston. “We’ve seen a lot of action, but it’s a hospital – you don’t assume that kind of stuff is happening. It’s just real sad.”
