DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — A 50-year-old employee has died after falling from an elevated catwalk at a Detroit-area steel company.
The man was pronounced dead at the former AK Steel facility following the fall which occurred about 3:15 a.m. Friday, Dearborn police said.
Foul play is not suspected, and Michigan’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been notified and will be conducting a thorough investigation, police added.
The employee was a resident of Dearborn, just west of Detroit.
“He was conducting a maintenance activity and experienced a fall,” said Patricia Persico, a spokeswoman for Cleveland-Cliffs.
The Ohio-based company acquired AK Steel last year.
