Updated: Construction worker dies in CDA accident

A Post Falls man died Tuesday when he fell while measuring for rain gutters on the roof of an apartment building that was under construction.

Larry G. Jones, 67, was working in Coeur d’Alene as a sub-contractor for Copper Basin Construction.

Coeur d’Alene police officers responded at 3:30 p.m. to the trauma call at North Grand Mill Lane and Seltice Way, a police department news release said.

Witnesses who saw Jones fall said he was not wearing a safety harness, the release said. Jones died at the scene.

“This appears to be a tragic accident,” said Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Ron Clark. “We extended our deepest sympathy to the family of Larry Jones.”
