Painter found dead at Sarasota school

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- A painter is dead after being pinned between a personnel lift and a wall at Sarasota Military Academy.

The accident happened Wednesday morning.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports two people found the worker and were able to lower the machine's bucket and call 911.

The man was unconscious when he was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Representatives from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are looking into the accident to determine whether it was work-related or due to a medical condition.
