A man working on the West Marine building in Hollister sustained

 major trauma Friday when he burst through the roof and fell about 
30 feet, a Hollister Fire Department captain confirmed. 

The accident at West Marine, 2395 Bert Drive, occurred at about 11:30
 a.m. Friday, said fire Capt. Tim Schneider. The employee with Mountain View-based 
Waterproofing Associates had been repairing dry rot on the two-story distribution 
warehouse with at least two other workers when he broke through the roof and fell, 
Schneider said.
