BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have identified a person who died after collapsing at a Beatrice auto parts manufacturing company as a member of a cleaning crew.

The Beatrice Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2htV0C5 ) that 67-year-old Michael Robertson, a Mosaic resident, was cleaning the Neapco facility Monday morning when he and another worker became ill. Workers reported a bad smell in the break room of the facility, and officials are investigating a possible chemical incident.

Mosaic is a faith-based organization that treats people with intellectual disabilities.

Both Robertson and the other worker were taken to hospitals. Officials say Robertson died at the Nebraska Heart Institute in Lincoln.

Police have not identified the other man, but say he was treated and released form Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center.
