CHASKA, Minn. (AP) - An employee working at a Chaska middle school has died after he fell off a ladder.

A spokesman for the Eastern Carver County School District says 51-year-old Daniel Buesgens was trying to repair a heater in a maintenance room of a domed athletic center when he fell off an 8-foot ladder Monday morning.

Buesgens was working in a room that is not in a public area. He was found by another school employee.

Physical education classes held in the center were canceled Monday as Chaska police and OSHA officials investigated.

The Star Tribune reports Buesgens had worked for the school district since 2015. He was a building and grounds employee.
