GALVESTON — A contractor critically hurt in a 60-foot fall died Thursday.

Bryan Hunt, 19, of Houston, was pressure washing a roof at Malin International Ship Repair and Drydock, 320 77th St., in Galveston on Wednesday when he stepped onto a panel that gave way, Galveston police said.

Police, firefighters and a medical crew were called to the business shortly before 11 a.m. and learned Hunt struck his head on a table as he fell to the floor of the tall, metal building.

An ambulance crew rushed Hunt, who was in critical condition, to the University of Texas Medical Branch. Hunt died at 2:12 a.m. Thursday, said John Florence, a spokesman for the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office.
