Construction worker dies on Thanksgiving morning

A construction worker died in Montgomery County Thursday morning, possibly after falling from an unknown height, county officials said.

By 11:30 a.m., police were on the scene to investigate, according to a police spokesman, but they do not suspect foul play. The man was working at a townhouse under construction in the area of Poplar Run Drive, which is in the Wheaton-Glenmont part of the county, about 5 miles north of the Capital Beltway. No further details were immediately released.
