FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Military Affairs has identified a civilian contractor who was killed and another who was injured in an accident at the Boone National Guard Center in Frankfort.

Spokesman David W. Altom said in an email that the man killed was 23-year-old Brandon Cloud of Harlan. Another worker, Wade Massingale, was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington and is in serious but stable condition.

Altom says the accident happened around 11:45 a.m. EDT Monday when an extension lift collapsed and fell.

The lift was being used to install siding on an aircraft hangar. Altom said the men were working for Davis Brothers Roofing of Church Hill, Tennessee.

Altom said the Kentucky Labor Cabinet is investigating.
