A well-known businessman and city leader has died after falling three stories from a fire escape in Beaufort County.
Gary Tomasulo was owner of La Bella Pizzeria on Main Street and the head of the Historic Downtown Merchants Association.
Officials say Tomasulo was working on a building he just bought about three months ago when he fell from a back fire escape Monday about 10 a.m.
There is no word why he fell. We do know a Washington police officer investigating the accident fell and injured her wrist, so the fire escape could have been slick from rain.
The building he fell from houses the popular ice cream shop "Scoops."
Tomasulo, originally from New York City, opened La Bella Pizzeria in July.
