The manager of the IDS building in Minneapolis sent a letter to tenants today, describing yesterday’s terrible tragedy that claimed the life of a workman who was removing snow from the Crystal Court.

It was necessary to close the entire Crystal Court and skyways following the accident. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you.
