GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 44-year-old worker has died after falling from the fourth floor of a building under construction in Greenville.

Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans told media outlets that Ascencion Medina lost his footing while working to build the apartments and retail space at the new Main and Stone development near downtown Greenville.

Evans says it appears Medina fell 30 feet and died from chest injuries.

Police and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are helping the coroner investigate the workplace death.
