GRETNA , La. -- What started out as a roofing repair turned into a fatal tragedy Friday morning as authorities investigated how a 27-year-old man fell from the roof of a business.

Ross Breaux of Covington was working alongside a relative when he stepped through a skylight and hit the ground below, Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Glen Boyd said.

Deputies received a report from the 1100 block of Wright Avenue around 9:45 a.m., authorities said.

Breaux was pronounced dead on the scene.
