Construction inspector dies in Pa. site fall

Friday, July 01, 2011

A city employee is dead after falling into a ditch while inspecting a construction site on the campus of Lehigh University.

Officials in Bethlehem say 58-year-old Al Calvo fell into a 10-foot hole Thursday afternoon at the site where crews were working on the university's new business center.

City officials say Calvo was an inspector for the Bethlehem's Public Works Department.

Lehigh University spokesman Jordan Reese says a private construction crew was working on the street as part of a project to upgrade the building's heating and air conditioning systems.

Bethlehem police say they are investigating.
