CAMDEN, N.J. - March 11, 2013 (WPVI) -- A worker is dead after falling from a building in Camden, New Jersey.
It happened before 8:30 a.m. Monday at the building that houses ReCommunity Recycling, located on the 2200 block of Mount Ephraim Avenue.
The victim, identified only as a 50-year-old man from Franklinville, New Jersey, was an employee of Harris Camden Terminal, which owns the property.
