      Man dies after falling through sky-light in Oceana County

      A man died after falling 30 feet through a sky-light while working on a roof at Rothbury Steel in Oceana County.

      A man died after falling 30 feet through a sky-light while working on a roof at Rothbury Steel in Oceana County.

      Emergency responders found 43-year-old Kevin W. Dilts, of Muskegon, dead from his injuries from the fall.

      Officials from Oceana County say Dilts was working for a contractor on the roof of the facility and was taking measurements and pictures of the work area on the roof.

      From the investigation, officials say it appears Dilts slipped and fell backwards into a sky-light, breaking the sky-light and falling 30-feet to the foundry floor.
