Electrical worker dies in fall from light pole

A 40-year-old electrical worker is dead after falling from a concrete utility light pole. Lee County Coroner Bill Harris said James Edward McCormick fell approximately 40-to-50 feet last night at Duck Samford Park in Auburn.

The accident occurred about 10 p-m. The coroner said McCormick suffered multiple internal injuries and died about 30 minutes later at East Alabama Medical Center. Harris said a preliminary investigation determined that McCormick was not wearing a safety harness when the accident occurred. He was employed by Walker County-based Titan Electrical in Dora.
