A contract worker is dead following a jobsite accident Tuesday at the Port of West St. Mary.
Sheriff's deputies received the call around 4:15 P. M. about a medical emergency at the port.
Port executive director David Allain says the victim was working on the roof of a building that the port rents when he fell.
Allain refused further comment about the incident pending an ongoing investigation into the accident by the port and other agencies.
