Shelton Police ID Fall Victim

Shelton Police have identified the contractor who fell from a roof at the Sunwood Condominium Complex Tuesday, and later died at the hospital.

Police say Francisco Amaral, 46, of Bridgeport fell roughly 39 feet from the rear roof of condo units on Jean Court while replacing skylights. He worked for J.C. Silva Remodeling Services of Bridgeport, said authorities.

Police say the incident seems to be nothing more than a tragic accident.
