SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police say that a man died after he fell through a skylight while installing solar panels on a warehouse roof in Millcreek.

Unified Police of Salt Lake County say that the 57-year-old man was helping another worker carry a panel Monday morning when he fell through the skylight measuring about four feet by four feet.

Detective Jared Richardson says the man landed on a concrete floor in a warehouse of a textile manufacturing business.

His son-in-law was also working on the roof and rushed to the ground. He tried to perform CPR with help from the textile workers, but the man died at the scene.

His name was not immediately released.

Investigators are probing what caused the fell and what safety measures were in place.
