Thursday, a man died after falling from a construction building in State College.

A construction worker at the former Days Inn on Pugh Street tragically fell five floors to his death Thursday Afternoon.

According to a release from State College Police, the man fell from an open window around 4:30 Thursday Afternoon and that preliminary investigation points to his death being accidental.
