Man found dead, face-down on Big Island roof

WAIMEA, Hawaii (AP) - Police say a man found face-down on a Big Island roof died while working on the home.

Forty-nine-year-old Barry Bokmej was found on the Waimea roof on Monday. Police say he and another man were hired to make repairs. Bokmej was pressure-washing the roof while the other worker was weeding the yard.

The person who hired them stopped at the house to check on their progress and found Bokmej unresponsive on the roof.

Firefighters took him down and transported him to Kona Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Foul play is not suspected. An autopsy will determine the cause of death.
