Construction Worker Slips On Ice, Dies On Thanksgiving

SILVER SPRING, Md. — Montgomery County police say a carpenter died after a fall at a Silver Spring construction site on Thanksgiving Day.

Police say it doesn’t appear that the man was carrying anything and a hard hat was found near his body. Police say there are no signs of foul play.

Maryland Occupational Safety and Health will investigate the accident.
