An architect has died after apparently becoming dizzy while working on the roof of a New York City skyscraper.

Police say 52-year-old Bruno Travelja, of Ridgewood, New Jersey, died on Thursday afternoon after plunging from the roof of the 42-storey building in Manhattan.

He was the owner of Crowne Architectural Systems in North Bergen, New Jersey, according to reports.

Police say Mr Travelja took off his harness and knelt down to take some measurements when he became dizzy and fell.

He was pronounced dead at the scene between 52nd and 53rd streets. An investigation is under way.
