The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the building inspector in Hamilton Township, N.J., will investigate an incident that happened during a roofing project at a residential site. A section of the third-story roof gave way, sending a roofing contractor tumbling into the attic. The crews appeared to have carried a heavy load of shingles onto the roof, which may have contributed to the collapse. Firefighters rescued the worker, who suffered minor injuries.
