CAYCE, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina officials are investigating after a worker was killed at a metal plant.

Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher said 25-year-old Corey Thomas Morris of Murrells Inlet was working for a contractor at CMC Steel South Carolina in Cayce on Thursday afternoon when he died.

Fisher’s office said in a statement Friday afternoon that Morris died from a blow to the head. The statement did not say how that occurred other than calling it a workplace accident.

Fisher says no one else was hurt.

The company and Cayce police are also investigating.

The previous story has been corrected to show the victim’s last name was Morris, not Moore.
