HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say a ship worker has died after falling about 50 feet while trying to connect a pipe to a crane on a vessel in the Houston Ship Channel.

Coast Guard officials say the accident happened Saturday afternoon. Investigators say the victim apparently lost his balance.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the names of the worker or the ship that was in Buffalo Bayou when the man fell, landing on the vessel.

Federal investigators will review the accident.
