A construction worker from Herndon died the day before Thanksgiving after succumbing to injuries from a fall in the Ashburn area, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
At 10:20 a.m. last Wednesday (Nov. 21), deputies discovered Jose Escalante, 49, had fallen between 10 to 29 feet to the ground from a ladder. He had been doing construction work at a residence on the 22000 block of Dolomite Hills Drive, police said.
“All indications are this was an accident,” a spokesman for the sheriff’s office told Reston Now.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration also responded to the scene, according to police.
Escalante succumbed to his injuries after being taken to a local hospital, police said.
