A man doing construction work died after accidentally falling from the roof of a building in Lugoff Friday afternoon.

Kershaw County Coroner David West identified the deceased as Larry Durney, 45, of West Columbia. 

West said Durney was laying tin on the roof of the building. He was wearing safety lines but had temporarily loosened them so he could change his position. A sudden gust of wind caught the piece of tin he was working with, causing it to suddenly fly up and knock him off the roof. 

Durney fell about 30 feet to the ground, West said.

Durney was transported to Kershaw Health where he was pronounced dead, West said.
