SEMINOLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Tampa Bay area man died when an 8-foot concrete wall fell on him while doing construction on a home.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office reports that 52-year-old Arben Berberi died Friday afternoon.

Berberi and two other men had purchased the home in the spring and were working on an addition when the slab fell. The home's two other owners were also working but uninjured.

Deputies say Berberi's death is most likely accidental. The medical examiner will also investigate.
