KSAL StaffJune 4, 2016

LEAWOOD, Kan. (AP) – A federal workplace safety investigation is planned in the case of a man who fell to his death from scaffolding during an apartment renovation site in suburban Kansas City.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration says it will scrutinize the death Friday in Leawood, Kansas, of a Van Trust Real Estate LLC employee.

The man’s name, age and hometown have not been released.

As OSHA’s area director in Wichita, Kansas, Judy Freeman says the agency extends its sympathies to the victim’s family and friends. She says OSHA will thoroughly investigate whether any safety standards were violated.
