Daniel Ruckoldt Death, Obituary – The coroner’s office has released the name of a contractor who, at the age of 59, needed to be rescued from the roof of a theater in downtown Antioch due to a medical condition.
The early autopsy results led the Lake County Coroner’s Office to the conclusion that Daniel Ruckoldt, 59, of Salem, Wisconsin, most likely died as a result of a cardiac ailment. The Antioch Fire Department and Antioch Police Department rushed to the PM&L Theatre, which is situated at 877 Main Street in Antioch, at 10:56 on Thursday morning.
The head of the Antioch fire department, Jon Cokefair, claims that there was a report concerning a person who was not breathing on the building’s top. Firefighters arrived on the scene in less than two minutes and discovered Ruckoldt seated on a roof three stories above ground. Ruckoldt was not breathing regularly and did not have a pulse.
Cokefair said that it was hard to determine how long the man had been dozing. Emergency medical personnel started cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him as soon as more firefighters were prepared to remove him off the roof. Firefighters used a Stokes basket and an aerial ladder vehicle to help lower Ruckoldt to the ground.
The patient received cardiac resuscitation while being transferred to the Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, according to Cokefair. Ruckoldt visited the emergency room, where he was later pronounced dead, according to the information given by the Lake County Coroner’s Office.
According to Cokefair, Ruckoldt allegedly worked as a contractor for the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. Cokefair said that when he was on the roof, he experienced some type of medical problem that briefly caused him to stop breathing. The toxicology results of Ruckoldt’s autopsy, which was done on Thursday, are still pending.
