Elderly Pasadena man dies in fall from carport roof

PASADENA – A 73-year-old man died Friday after falling from his carport roof while making repairs, authorities said.
The name of the man was not released Sunday pending confirmation that family members had been notified, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Lt. Larry Dietz said.
The accident took place about 11 a.m. Friday in the 1600 block of Locust Street, Pasadena police Lt. Chris Russ said.
“A 73-year-old Pasadena resident was doing repairs on his carport when he lost his balance and fell from the roof,” Russ said.
He was rushed to the hospital, Russ said, and a police chaplain was summoned to comfort the man’s wife, who was present at the time of the accident.
The man was pronounced dead shortly before 9 p.m. at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, Dietz said.
