Seattle college student dies in Boston roof top fall

The Seattle Times reports that Justin Amorratanasuchad, 21, of Seattle, died when he slipped and fell at least four stories from a Boston rooftop while working on a film project. The fatal accident occurred at a building at 610 Columbus Avenue. Amorrantanasuchad apparently did not live in the building.

Amorratanasuchad was a junior at Emerson College and a graduate of Ballard High School in Seattle. Many describe him as a dedicated and hard working student.

In the wake of the death, city officials are urging property owners to safeguard roof access for safety sake’s. One Boston newspaper, however, reported that it appeared that the roof access had been locked down but that the lock had been tampered.

It is a tragic to lose a vital young man in such an accident. Our condolences go out to his family.
