NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – A maintenance employee for Dillard’s was working on the roof of the Eastwood Mall above the north end of the store when he collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack Tuesday morning.
Cafaro company spokesman Joe Bell told WKBN that the unidentified worker was up on the roof with a worker from Roth Roofing around 8:30 a.m.
The two were looking for a leak at the time. The roofing contractor told authorities he heard a thud and turned around and found the man unconscious.
Rescue crews responded and worked to try to revive the man for 20 minutes before they pronounced him dead.
