  1. Jason Miller, do you have direct knowledge of what transpired? It sounds unlikely. Condolences to everyone affected by this horrible tragedy is certainly appropriate. Any other form of comment is not.

  2. Condolences to the family of the unfortunate man that lost his life in this preventable accident. This is the second case of someone dying in that general area from something falling on them.
