Jeremy Rose, a Sure Steel employee from Idaho, fell about 18 feet at a building under construction on Thursday, police said.

Rose suffered a severe head injury and was taken to Hilo Medical Center, then flown to The Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu in critical condition, police said. Rose died Friday, police said.
