Tony Zang, 43, of the first block of York Street, fell while working on a roof at Pennex Aluminum, 50 Community St., in Wellsville. He fell at 1:45 p.m. and died at the scene, according to the coroner's office. He was an employee of M J Delp Construction, in Dover.

A Saturday morning autopsy at the Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown revealed that Zang died from multiple blunt force trauma.

This incident marks the second work-related death this year, according to the coroner's office. A Springettsbury Township man died in mid-February after falling off a ladder at a Giant in Shrewsbury.
