Man dies after Canterbury barn fall

A man has died after falling from the roof of a barn he was trying to fix in rural Canterbury.

Ian Lester Totty, 72, was found by a relative after falling at a farm near Staveley, west of Christchurch, on Sunday afternoon.

He died at the scene.

Senior Constable Mike Seque said the cause of death would be determined by the coroner.

"Ian's family are incredibly upset and are being supported by family, friends and neighbours," he said.
