A 60-year-old construction worker fell to his death Thursday morning inside an Eckerd College auditorium in St. Petersburg.
Police report that the Brooksville man was employed by Universal Control, a electrical contracting company, and was working on the air-conditioning system at Eckerd’s Bininger Performing Arts Building. News reports indicate that he was working on a catwalk when he fell 30 to 40 feet to his death.
