1 man dead, 1 injured in WA roofing accident


A King County sheriff’s spokeswoman says a roofing accident in suburban Redmond killed one man and injured another.

Sgt. Katie Larson tells KOMO-TV (http://is.gd/w01poP ) that the men were patching the cedar roof of a home on Ames Lake Road on Friday afternoon when they both slipped and fell about 50 feet to a cement walkway.

One man was dead at the scene. The other was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle to be treated for multiple broken bones.
