Worker tumbles off building, dies

Jairam Samaroo died after falling off this ramp


A 48 year old Chaguanas man died after he slipped and fell 20 feet to the ground at a worksite in Claxton Bay on Tuesday.

Jairam Samaroo, 48, of Rodney Road, Endeavour died at the scene.

Officers were contacted by a contractor who told them that Samaroo was conducting electrical work on a two storey building at Mt Pleasant Road.

The contractor told police that Samaroo was walking on a concrete ramp when he slipped off and hit his head as he fell.

His co-workers went to his assistance and contacted authorities.

Paramedics attempted to revive Samaroo but were unsuccessful.

An autopsy was expected to be performed at the Forensics Sciences Centre, Federation Park yesterday.
