MT. ETNA — A construction worker died Tuesday after scaffolding collapsed in northeastern Indiana, authorities said.
Emergency personnel were called to the Indiana 105 bridge over Salamonie Lake in southwest Huntington County about 7:20 a.m., the county coroner's office said in a news release.
Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officers and an agency dive team recovered the man’s body in about 39 feet of water, the release said.
The worker was wearing a harness, but he was not tethered, the release added.
The release did not describe the work the man had been doing, The Journal Gazette reported.
The cause of death is pending an autopsy.
The man’s name was being withheld pending notification of family.
