A 67-year-old man who died last week after he fell through a skylight into a building in west suburban Forest Park has been identified.
Konstantinos Vayas was on the roof of Aroma Coffee Company to do some patch work in the 7600 block of Industrial Drive at 10:52 a.m. on May 15 when he fell through the skylight about 20 to 25 feet to the ground, according to Forest Park Police Chief Tom Aftanas and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Vayas was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced dead at 11:18 a.m., according to Aftanas and the medical examiner’s office. His home address was unknown Wednesday morning.
An autopsy found he died of multiple injuries in a fall from a height, and his death was ruled an accident, according to the medical examiner’s office.
He was hired by the company from time to time to do odd jobs, and was only known by his first name, Aftanas said.
Aftanas said the man was on the roof by himself and the fall appears to be accidental.
