SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A 24-year-old man died Tuesday in a fall at a downtown Sioux Fall construction site, police said.

Police were called around 10:45 a.m. about a man injured at the construction site of the First Premier Bank building. The Argus Leader reports the site is the planned national headquarters building of First Premier Bank.

The man died at the scene. Police spokesman Sam Clemens said police will not release the name of the victim because there does not appear to be a crime committed.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the death with help from police.

Construction of the five-story building started in March 2019 and was planned to finish by November 2020, with the bank opening in 2021. Construction company Henry Carlson Co. is working as general contractor for the project and did not comment when contacted by the Argus Leader.
