Roofer Dies in Accident

download (12)When heading out to work each day, no one thinks about the potential of getting into an accident. There’s no doubt that a roofer who died as the result of an accident at Coggin DeLand Ford on Thursday wasn’t thinking that an on-the-job accident was about to happen to him.

According to the Orange City Police Department, Robert Heyman, 35, was found unresponsive and pinned between a bucket-lift and the roof of the business on North Volusia Avenue shortly before 7:00 a.m. Another man who was in the lift at the time of the fatal accident dropped 30 feet to the ground, leaving him with an injured ankle.

Heyman, an employee of Tecta America, the company contracted to do roofing at Coggin DeLand Ford, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lt. Jason Sampsell, with the Orange City Police Department said that it was clearly an accident and investigators are trying to determine what exactly happened.

Police detectives are trying to determine if it was equipment failure, operator error or a combination that may have caused the accident.
