Architect Gets Dizzy on Roof of Building, Falls to His Death

NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of an architect who fell to his death after apparently getting dizzy while working on the roof of a New York City skyscraper.

Police say 52-year-old Bruno Travelja, of Ridgewood, New Jersey, died Thursday afternoon after plunging from the roof of the 42-story building in Manhattan.

The Daily News, who reached his wife, reported that he was the owner of Crowne Architectural Systems in North Bergen, New Jersey.

Police say Travelja took off his harness and knelt down to take some measurements when he became dizzy and fell.

They say he fell on a second-floor landing between 52nd and 53rd streets and suffered severe trauma to his body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
