Lawrenceburg man falls from roof, dies

A 76-year-old Anderson County man died Friday after he fell from the roof of his home. Norman D. Jones of Lawrenceburg fell about noon while clearing ice out of a gutter.

"There was a water leak in the house, and he went up to clean the ice out of the gutter," said his daughter, Gwen Davis of Lawrenceburg. "He slipped off the roof and fell."

Jones, who received head and neck injuries, was pronounced dead at University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington about 1:20 p.m., according to a Fayette County coroner's report.

Jones, a retired farmer, was the husband of Virginia Jones.
