Officials said a construction worker has died after he fell while working on a new building at Western Kentucky University.

The Bowling Green Daily News reported Andy Mays, president of Whittenberg Construction, the general contractor for the project, said the incident happened November 10.

Officials said the unidentified man, who worked for Louisville-based Archway Roofing and Sheet Metal, was injured after falling while working on the university's new Ogden College Hall.

He said the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been investigating.
