LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles coroner’s officials say a telecommunications company worker found dangling from a utility pole was a 61-year-old resident of Studio City.

Coroner’s Lt. Dave Smith said Sunday that an autopsy is pending for Robert Alfred Hernandez.

Fire officials say Hernandez was hanging upside down when rescue crews arrived Friday afternoon. He was brought down and pronounced dead at the scene in Valley Glen.

City News Service says initial reports indicate he may have suffered a medical emergency as he was working.
