MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) – Authorities are investigating after a man working on a cell tower in Meridian fell to his death.
Lauderdale County Coroner Clayton Cobler said the man, who was between 30 and 40 years old, was wearing his safety harness and equipment designed to prevent such a fall.
Cobler said the man’s co-worker had turned away to work on something and when he turned back, he saw the victim falling.
Cobler said the man’s body has been sent to Pearl for an autopsy.
