DEXTER, Iowa (AP) — A man who was helping to string a new power line near Dexter has died in a fall.

KCCI-TV reports the man fell about 50 feet Tuesday morning while working as part of a crew a couple miles north of Dexter.

The workers were hanging power lines on the west side of Dexfield Road when the fall occurred from a boom truck.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office says the man died from injuries he received in the fall.

The man’s identity and other details weren’t available.

Dexter is about 30 miles west of Des Moines.
