Authorities in Maine are investigating the death of a man who fell about 80 feet from a lift in Dayton.

DAYTON, Maine (AP) _ Shawn Hutchins was pronounced dead at the scene on Wednesday night at Dayton Sand and Gravel.

Major William King of the York County Sheriff's office said in a statement that Hutchins, a 41-year-old Dayton resident, was an employee at the facility but the plant was not in operation at time and it's not known why Hutchins was in the lift.

King said one witness has been interviewed but no details were available. Maine state police are assisting in the investigation.
