One person has died after falling from a ladder at Nordstrom Friday morning.
An official with the company confirmed an employee fell off a ladder and later succumbed to their injuries.
A sign on one of the entrances reads, "Due to a tragic loss in our store family we will be closed today. Thank you for your understanding."
Monday afternoon, the Spokane County Medical Examiner confirmed the person who died was Paul Inc, 52, a long-time maintenance worker at Nordstrom who was well-liked and considered very sincere by his fellow employees, who are now being take care of by their employer.
"Our goal is to serve our customers but also bring our employees together, and let them have the opportunity to gather and remember their friend and co-worker. They will have counselors on site starting tomorrow and one on one appointments as necessary," Nordstrom spokesperson Tara Darrow said.
Nordstrom will also be working with Inc's family to make sure they receive the care they need.
The medical examiner reported Inc died as a result of fractures to the base and vault of his skull due to blunt impact to the head. This was caused by a fall from the ladder after suffering an electrical burn on his left wrist.
While Spokane Police responded to the store, the Department of Labor and Industries will be investigating the employee's death.
