Construction accident victim identified

Staff reports

The name of a Carson City man killed in a construction accident in Kingsbury was released Wednesday.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Greg Hubbard said Manuel Chavez-Barragan, 41, was pronounced dead at the scene following a 25-foot fall onto rocks from a roof.

Hubbard said Chavez-Barragan was working for AAA Roofing when he was on top of a North Bowl Lane home off Kingsbury Grade, and material began to slide. Barragan apparently tried to avoid the material and fell to his death, Hubbard said.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was called in to investigate, according to Sgt. Tom Mezzetta said.
