GEORGE WEST, Texas (AP) - One man has been killed and another hurt in an industrial accident as both worked on the side of a Union Pacific Railroad bridge near Interstate 37 in South Texas.
Both men fell about 30 feet while working Wednesday afternoon in Live Oak County.
Union Pacific spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza in Houston said the lift apparently fell and both men hit the ground.
Espinoza said one man died at the scene. The other worker was transported to a hospital. His name and further details on injuries weren't immediately available Thursday.
The Live Oak County Sheriff's Office on Thursday didn't immediately provide information on the accident or identify the man who died.
Union Pacific is based in Omaha, Neb.
