HUGER, S.C. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a man killed in an industrial accident at a Berkeley County steel plant.

Coroner Bill Salisbury says 44-year-old Cisco Agbunag of Goose Creek died Thursday.

The coroner says a large piece of equipment fell on Agbunag at the Nucor Steel plant in Huger in an equipment shop where repairs are made.

Workers at the plant melt scrap metal to recast it into sheet metal and I-beams. The plant employs more than 900 people.

Authorities are still investigating to determine exactly what happened. Officials say production shut down after the accident but resumed Friday morning.
