On April 23, roofing workers made a grueling discovery while
tearing off a Mexican restaurant's roof system in Morton Grove,
Ill. In one roof area, workers of NRCA member Nelson Roofing Co.,
Chicago, tore off a series of misaligned shingles, causing the
plywood deck to become loose. Underneath the plywood, workers found
a sheet of plastic covering several recycling containers that were
duct-taped closed; some containers were filled with concrete.
Warner Nelson, president of Nelson Roofing, threw one recycling
container that held yellow Tupperware and concrete off the roof.
When the container hit the ground, it broke open to reveal a
clenched human hand.
