Worker dies of injuries at construction site

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Jefferson County coroner's office says multiple blunt force injuries caused the death of a worker who apparently fell down an elevator shaft at an apartment building under construction next to the University of Louisville's main campus.

Deputy Coroner Larry Carroll says workers found 34-year-old Anthony Warner of Louisville at the bottom of the elevator shaft. Carroll wasn't sure how far Warner fell.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/UdB5d1 ) said Warner was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:20 p.m. EDT Wednesday.

Carroll said Louisville police are investigating.

The site is being developed into more than 250 student apartments and more than 7,000 square feet of retail space.
