    Worker Killed In Fall At Fort Worth Hospital - Mary Stewart, CBS 11, TX
    Just before Tuesday's storm hit Tarrant County, the contractor at the new JPS patient tower saw lightning in the distance.

    According to Lucia Construction Inc. subcontractor Troy Garrett, 'The order was given to come off the scaffolding.' The accident happened as employees attempted to get out of the weather. 'Charles Cannon stumbled off the scaffold even with all the safety features in place,' Garrett said.

    Cannon tumbled from the 6th floor to the 3rd floor... a distance of about 40-feet."
