Zimmerman man dies from fall while working
A 43-year-old Zimmerman man working for DirectTV died from injuries sustained in a fall while working on an Elk River resident’s roof on July 13.
Jeffrey Fiereck was working on a sattelite dish that afternoon at a home in the 13000 block of 180th Ct. when he apparently fell from the roof or a ladder, Kluntz said.
No one witnessed the fall, but a resident who was inside her home came out to find the man on a concrete slab. Elk River Police was dispatched at 1:55 p.m. The man was eventually airlifted to Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, where he later died.
No foul play is suspected, but the matter is being investigated by the Elk River Police Department, OSHA and the Anoka County Medical Examiner.
