New York Worker Dies in Fall at New ‘Choppers’ Business

June 17, 2010

A man working on the roof of “American Choppers” co-star Paul Teutul Jr.’s new motorcycle business has died after falling through a hole.

Police in Orange County, New York say the Middletown roofing company employee stepped backward into a hole that had been cut in the roof and fell 40 feet Tuesday morning. They say the 26-year-old man from Beacon, whose name hasn’t been released, died at the scene in Montgomery, 60 miles north of New York City.

Teutul is leasing space in the building to open his own motorcycle shop. He and his father, Paul Sr., had a falling out, but plan to go head-to-head this fall when the cable TV series resumes.

Neither Paul Jr. nor other cast members were at the building when the accident happened.
