This summer’s heat continues to take a toll on workers across the country. In this case, four workers at one work-site needed treatment for heat exposure.
About two dozen employees of United States Roofing Co. were removing shingles and replacing the roof on a middle school in Upper Chichester, PA. One man, who was tarring part of the roof, had collapsed and was lowered by basket. Emergency crews who responded say as that man was being stablized, a second man on the roof collapsed. He was also lowered to the ground by basket.
As the second man was being lowered, emergency crews received word of another man on another roof and a fourth man under a tree trying to recover from the heat.
