A MAN has died after falling from the roof of his three-storey house in Kentish Town.
Martin Wilson, 58, suffered serious head and neck injuries when he fell on Bank Holiday Monday.
Ambulances and police rushed to his Queen's Crescent home at 2.15pm. Paramedics treated him at the scene and stabilised his condition before he was taken to the Royal London hospital by air ambulance. But Mr Wilson died a short time later during emergency surgery. Mr Wilson's family were too upset to speak this week but neighbours believe he had been on the roof fixing his TV aerial.
A post-mortem was due to place yesterday to find the cause of death and an inquest is due to be opened at St Pancras Coroner's Court on Friday. Police have confirmed they are not treating Mr Wilson's death as suspicious.
In February 2008, Noel Corbin, 29, fell to his death from a four-storey house in Belsize Park Gardens while working for Sky fixing a satellite dish. In March this year, a coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death despite his family raising concerns about the risks of the job.
