ATLANTIC, Pa. (AP) - A coroner says a 20-year-old man accidentally fell from the roof of an abandoned munitions plant in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Crawford County Coroner Scott Schell has identified the victim as Tyler Buchan, of Carlton.

Schell says Buchan was with three other men and a woman when he fell about 12:05 a.m. Tuesday in Greenwood Township.

The building used to be part of a plant that made munitions used in World War I and World War II.

Buchan fell onto a concrete slab and his friends were driving him from the scene when paramedics intercepted them and took Buchan to Meadville Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

State police are continuing to investigate.

Schell says Buchan died of cardiac arrest brought on by trauma injuries.
