Killed by a Portable Toilet

Ramon Jose Rodriguez, a 23-year-old construction worker from Miami, Florida, was killed when a Porta-Jon portable toilet fell from the fourth story of a building and landed on top of him. The portable toilet was on rollers to make it easier to frequently move and was blown off the edge of an unfinished building by a sudden gust of wind.
