Worker who died after falling through building’s roof in South Park Twp. identified

SOUTH PARK TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A worker died after falling through the roof of a building Wednesday morning in South Park Township, police said.

The fall happened at the Agricultural Building of the South Park Fairground on Brownsville Road around 10:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said the worker, identified Monday as 59-year-old Frank Scabilloni, of Bethel Park, was on the roof of the building and fell through a skylight.

Police said Scabilloni was found unresponsive when first responders arrived, and paramedics attempted lifesaving measures, but he eventually succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Homicide detectives and the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office were called to the scene to investigate.

Police said Scabilloni was an employee of Marsa Masonry, contracted to perform work on the Agricultural Building. He left the scaffolding he was working from and climbed onto the roof of the building before a witness saw him fall backwards and through a skylight in the roof, about 21 feet. Foul play is not suspected, police said.
