ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate the death of a man by electrocution Tuesday in Eagle River.

Anchorage Police Department spokeswoman Anita Shell tells Anchorage television station KTUU (http://bit.ly/2ajuEOv) that 57-year-old Donald Emmert died as he worked on a well.

Anchorage Police Sgt. Todd Kearns says Emmert was associated with Chugiak-based Sullivan Water Wells.

Kearns says Emmert was working alone and raising a truck boom when it apparently touched overhead electrical wires.

Police and medics reached the scene at about 10:30 a.m.

An autopsy has been scheduled.
