Authorities say laborer killed working on Pittsburgh home
Apr. 20, 2017
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A laborer has been killed after coming into contact with electricity while working on a Pittsburgh home.
The Allegheny County medical examiner and Pittsburgh police were continuing to investigate the death of 21-year-old Dakota Marshall, of Ford City.
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration was also investigating, though a spokesman wouldn't say what kind of work Marshall was doing, or who he was employed by at the time.
A city public safety spokeswoman says Marshall was moving some planks when he was "exposed to electricity." The medical examiner says that happened shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday.
The medical examiner didn't immediately rule on the cause of manner of death.
