Emergency crews respond to an incident on the 1500-block of Rosser Avenue on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the death of a man who was found on the roof of a city apartment block is not suspicious.

Officers and paramedics were called to a report of an unconscious man on the roof of the Kin Village seniors apartment building in the 1500-block of Rosser Avenue between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

The man was later pronounced dead, but no foul play is suspected.

Police say it was a medical-related ambulance call that officers attended as a matter of procedure.

The man, believed to be in his early 50s, was working at the time, so Workplace Safety and Health was also contacted as a matter of procedure, even though the death was from a medical cause and not work-related.

The man had been on the roof as part of his work duties, police said, although they couldn’t confirm the man’s job as of late Wednesday afternoon.

A sign for a window-cleaning company stood in front of the building where ropes led from the ground to equipment on the roof.

A Workplace Safety and Health official took photos of the equipment.

Police continue to investigate as the matter is considered a sudden death, and will assist the office of the medical examiner.
