A man died after he fell through a skylight in Tennessee while clearing snow off a business’ roof this week. 

The unidentified 66-year-old man fell about 20 feet Monday afternoon while on a roof in Hickman County in the central part of the state, the Hickman County Sheriff’s Office said, according to reports. 

The man was pronounced dead at the scene after he fell onto a concrete floor, the Hickman County Emergency Management Agency said, according to WKRN-TV. A witness called 911 after the accident.
