TULSA, OK -- A 41-year old man who had fallen off a building's scaffolding Wednesday afternoon, has died. 

Tulsa Fire Department spokesman Bill French says the man fell off the 6-foot scaffolding onto the ground.  He says no workers saw the man fall, but say he may have had a seizure before falling.

Workers immediately used an automatic defibrillator that was on scene. 

French says firefighters and EMSA personnel spent several critical minutes performing CPR on the man as they transported him to a Tulsa hospital.   

The incident happened shortly after 1:30 p.m. at 4220 South Memorial.
