Durban - A man, who fell off the roof of a two-storey building and was impaled on a palisade fence, was found dead by paramedics on Tuesday.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the man worked for a company that was repairing the awnings on the building in Warner Beach on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast.

He was trying to secure an awning in heavy wind when he fell on Tuesday.

Paramedics arrived on the scene to find that the man had already died.

Botha could not say what part of the man's body was impaled on the fence.
