Man Falls Through Skylight While Clearing Snow in Waltham

Winter continues to be a work hazard in Massachusetts. A young man who was hired to shovel snow off of the Antico Industrial Park roofs in Waltham, fell approximately 25 feet through a skylight at 108 Clematis Avenue. The young man who is in his early twenties remains unidentified. He survived the fall with only minor injuries and was conscious upon arrival of the emergency crew. He was taken to Beth Isreal Deaconess Hospital.

According to Waltham Fire Deputy Chief, Thomas MacInnis, “Halfway down, he hit a sprinkler pipe, which broke his fall a little, and then he landed on boxes half-full of printed material. That definitely broke his fall, so he was kind of lucky.”
