INDIANOLA, Miss. (AP) - Sunflower County authorities say a 29-year-old Itta Bena man has died from injuries sustained when he apparently fell from an industrial lift.

County Coroner Heather Burton tells The Greenwood Commonwealth (https://bit.ly/Uw8LDZ ) Tavares Williams fell Tuesday about 18 feet from the top of a scissor lift, also known as a “manlift.”

Burton says Williams was pronounced dead at the scene. Any autopsy will be conducted.

Authorities say Williams was working in the warehouse freezer section of the Lewis Grocer Division of Supervalu, located on U.S. Highway 49 West, when the accident occurred about 11 a.m.
