An AT&T worker died Friday morning, and police believe he may have been electrocuted while on a ladder, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Waco police, Waco firefighters and emergency medical services responded to an injured person in an alley near the 1400 block of Barron Avenue, Swanton said.

Swanton said Justice of the Peace W.H. “Pete” Peterson pronounced the 61-year-old man dead at the scene and ordered an autopsy. The man’s identity has not been released, and the death is being investigated as an industrial accident, Swanton said.
