Authorities have released the identify of a utility worker who died after falling from a cell tower on Highway 12 in Longview Saturday.

 

Oktibbeha County Coroner Michael Hunt confirmed that John Womack, 43, of Mountain View, Arkansas, fell from between 76 and 90 feet in what appears to have been an accident at about 2:30 p.m. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating because it was a workplace incident, Hunt said.
