    A person has fallen from the second floor of a building that is under construction, according to police.

    A 35-year-old New Haven man has died after falling 12-feet off a staging area while working on a residential construction site on Cherry Hill Road in Middlefield on Friday morning.

    Lamar Liddell was pronounced dead at the scene, according to officials.

    He was with four other coworkers when he fell and one of Liddell’s colleagues witnessed the fall, according to officials.

    Officials do not know if Liddell had a health problem that might have contributed to the accident. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.

    Luanci Construction company, based in North Haven, is building the house and NBC Connecticut went to the company’s address, but no one was there.

    Officials said Liddell leaves behind a wife.
