Worker dies after fall from scaffolding in Medfield


A construction worker died today when scaffolding collapsed in Medfield and he fell at least 10 feet, authorities said.

Raymond Fenoff, 38, of Douglas, was working as a roofer on a new home on Old Village Square when the scaffolding beneath him appears to have failed, officials said.

Fenoff was working for his family's company.

A number of law enforcement officials responded to the scene, including Medfield Police Chief Robert Meaney, Jr. and State Police detectives working for the office of Norfolk District Attorney William R. Keating.

A spokesman for the district attorney said an initial probe found no signs of foul play. Fenoff's body was taken to the state medical examiner's office in Boston for a forensic examination.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration also responded to the scene. The federal investigators are trying to determine whether proper safety procedures were being used at the construction site.
