A Lexington man has died from injuries sustained in a fall at Illinois Wesleyan.

McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling says 56-year old David Powell died Friday night at Advocate BroMenn in Normal.

The coroner says Powell was working for Union Roofing and was finishing a project at the Shirk Center April 1, 2011 when he fell approximately eight feet.

The Coroner's office and OSHA are investigating.
Kimmerling says it is unlikely Powell experienced a medical event prior to the fall.
