The Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office confirmed the death Monday, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The man, who was not named, complained of chest pain and fell from the ladder last Wednesday, suffering traumatic injuries. He was transported to a hospital, where he died Saturday afternoon. An autopsy was performed Monday.
