Construction Worker Slips Off Roof in Hurricane Sandy

A construction worker fell off a second-story roof in North Caldwell Monday while trying to secure a project from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy.

Police say a 44-year-old man from Caldwell has been transported to St. Joseph's Medical Center in Paterson after he slipped and fell about 20 feet.

The man was working to secure a construction project at his client's home on Cambridge Road.

The accident happened at about 3 p.m. during wet and windy conditions. But Police Chief Mark Deuer said it is believed the man slipped and was not blown off the roof.

His injuries are not life-threatening, Deuer said.
