A 52 year old DeKalb County, Alabama man died Wednesday while working at the former Zartic plant on Lavender Drive.  Reports stated that Ronald Ivey fell at least thirty feet from a skylight while working on the roof of the building.

A family member of Ivey’s owns JC Metal Roofing, which was subcontracted for work on the job. Reports added that Ivey stepped through a skylight and dropped straight onto a concrete floor at around 11:00am. 

He reportedly died shortly after arriving at Floyd Medical Center.
