There are still scant details in the OSHA investigation into the death of a worker who fell from a tower this morning. 

Ken Montgomery, area director for OSHA, said his office has a compliance officer on site to interview officials there.  He said he has not yet been briefed on those interviews and did not have any information to release other than a fatality occurred to an employee of a private company.

Initial reports indicated the worker fell 80 feet but Montgomery, nor OSHA officials, could not confirm how far the person fell.
