An Indiana man killed while working on a cell tower in central Kentucky has been identified.
WKYT-TV reports that investigators initially believed a cable had snapped, but they found the cable to be in one piece. The three other workers at the tower reported hearing a loud pop before realizing what happened, police say.
Metz worked for Fortune Wireless out of Indianapolis. Company officials were at the scene on Thursday trying to figure out what caused the cable to loosen.
Metz's body was left suspended 240 feet in the air, and crews with Northern Kentucky Technical Rescue finally removed the body around 10 p.m. Thursday night.
