City orders porches removed following death
April 25, 2015 15:54 GMT
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- City inspectors in Portland have ordered exterior porches to be removed from an apartment building where a man fell from a second-floor porch and died earlier this week.
Fifty-three-year old Donald Stain was leaning against the porch railing of the Cumberland Avenue apartment on Thursday when it gave away and he fell about 20 feet.
The city on Friday said it found a number of violations at the building. It ordered the three porches to be removed or destroyed and to not be used before then. The inspection documents also say decay and water damage was found on the rear interior stairwell, which must be repaired.
