Police have released the name of a 22-year-old window cleaner who died after falling off the roof of a hospital building.
Joshua Keith Obenauer was washing windows at Avera McKennan's Prairie Center when the accident happened about 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
Police say he was moving scaffolding equipment when it fell over the edge of the building with him attached to a harness. The falling equipment pulled him over the edge. A witness saw the man on the second floor and went to get help, but the man died from the injuries.
Police say the frame of the equipment was somewhat on top of him when he was found.
Authorities say Obenauer was employed by High Rise Enterprises Inc.
