Thank you for the contribution, Soar!

I still have not been able to locate a photo of the deceased.

I don't know if anything will come of it. But I wouldn't be surprised if the company he works for is fined by osha or some other oversight organization. If osha walks through a work site and sees a employee without a hard hat I know the company can be fined on the spot. Doesn't matter why or what the person is doing.

Re: Man Killed By Falling Tape Measure

I doubt a hard hat would have done anything for a 1lb metal measuring tape falling from 50 stories.

Thank you for your contribution, Shaz!

Very common name here, just in the state of New Jersey alone!

I thought I found him, but, it was a guy with the same name who died a few years ago in the same area as this man.

We shall never know.

The tape measure, apparently, ricocheted off something, so he could have gotten it in the eye or below the neck. You just never know.

I just read that an expert determined the tape measure traveled at about 140 m.p.h.!
