PULASKI — A 23-year-old man died Monday afternoon after he was blown off the roof of a building on which he was working in the village.

The man was not identified. State police said the incident happened at 2:06 p.m., as the man was installing metal roofing at the F.X. Caprara construction site, Route 13. A wind gust blew him and a piece of the roofing off the structure, from a height of approximately 24 feet.

The man, who was transported by ambulance to Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse, was pronounced dead at 5:15 p.m. as a result of his injuries.

Police said they would not identify the victim until his next of kin have been notified.
