The death of a man who died on the job in Pittsylvania County last year has been ruled accidental.

Daniel Graney died in May 2013 while working at Intertape Polymer Group in Ringgold. During a news conference Tuesday morning Sheriff Mike Taylor announced that Graney’s death was an accident.

Graney fell from a catwalk after loosing his footing while taking pictures with another employee. He fell backwards off one catwalk and landed on another catwalk approximately 30 feet below.

Sheriff Taylor said they were able to rule out suicide and homicide through the investigation.

Graney’s family was on hand for the news conference. His wife says she now has closure.
