Brookline Police report a man working an overnight security shift at the Country Club in advance of the upcoming US Open, was found dead yesterday morning.
Injuries and evidence at the scene suggest that he may have fallen from a decking area behind a tent that did not have railings present. OSHA responded to the scene to open a workplace safety investigation.
While the evidence available at this time is not inconsistent with an accidental fall, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has accepted the case and will determine the cause and manner of death.
The Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health reports that David C. McConnell of Revere, 60, fell 10 to 12 feet.
