Worker dies in industrial accident at Seattle shipyard

SEATTLE (AP) - A Seattle Fire Department spokesman says a man has died in a fall at a Seattle shipyard.

Spokesman Kyle Moore said the unidentified man fell between 75 and 100 feet Friday afternoon, tumbling from a structure at a Vigor shipyards worksite. Moore says the man hit scaffolding on the way down and suffered severe trauma.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
