Bartlett man dead after fall from billboard

A 42-year-old man is dead after a fall from a billboard Saturday just east of Route 71 near I-80. He was identified as Damien E. Glasgow, of Bartlett.

He was working on the billboard at the time.

The Marseilles Fire Department says Glasgow fell about 30-feet and was barely breathing when the ambulance arrived.

Responders tried CPR on him to no avail.

A coworker called 911 after the fall.

Marseilles Fire Chief Michael Garrison says he doesn’t know what caused it.
