Two Fall From Roof at East Hampton Construction Site

Two construction workers fell off a roof in East Hampton Village on Friday morning.

Village Police Chief Gerard Larsen said they had fallen 15 feet when the "scaffolding shifted" at the construction site at 32 Mill Hill Lane. East Hampton Village Volunteer Ambulance Association received the call at 10:18 a.m.

"The injuries did not appear life-threatening," Chief Larsen said.

One man was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital after a Medevac helicopter landed at the East Hampton Airport. The other man was taken to Southampton Hospital, as there was only one Medevac available at the time.

This was the second major accident at a construction site in the East Hampton Town this week. On Wednesday, two men were airlifted to Stony Brook after they fell 30 to 40 feet off scaffolding into a basement at a Culloden Point property in Montauk. Their injuries were also not believed to be life-threatening.
