Fatal Fall from Bucket Truck

11/4/13

Akron, Ohio

A man using a bucket truck to install aluminium siding last week in Akron, Ohio fell around five meters to his death.

The man Chris Watterson, 59, was declared dead just after arrival a local hospital, so far we have very few details of what happened. Only that it happened last Tuesday morning. We are assuming that he was not wearing a harness and was possibly stretching/reaching out from the platform when he slipped and fell. However this is purely based on small pieces of information from local people who did not witness the incident themselves.
