NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The Occupational Health and Safety Administration is investigating the death of a worker who fell at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center.

The Charleston County coroner’s office tells local media outlets that the technical director at the theater, 54-year-old David Swain of Moncks Corner, died Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say he fell 30 to 40 feet from a hydraulic lift and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A spokesman for the Performing Arts Center says no shows were taking place at the time and no one else was hurt.
