ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Smithville Police are investigating after a worker fell 40 feet to his death Sunday.

Three co-workers watched as 18 year old Christopher Soto of Leesburg lost his footing while carrying tools on a beam and fell through the roof. Just after 10:00 Sunday morning, Smithville Police were called to McCleskey Mills Incorporated. They found Soto lying on the concrete floor unconscious.

Soto's body has been sent to the crime lab in Atlanta to determine if there was something medical related to his fall. Coroner Ronald Rowe said Soto had no known medical conditions.
