(WPTV) — A Florida man died Sunday as he prepared his home for Hurricane Dorian, according to police.

David Allen Bradley, 68, of Indialantic, died after he fell three stories from his home, Indialantic Police Chief Mike Connor told CNN.

Bradley was trying to cover up his home's windows with plywood Sunday, before Hurricane Dorian was set to come close to Florida's coastline in the next few days.

Connor told CNN that Bradley's wife was home and ran outside upon hearing a crash, but by the time police arrived it was too late.
