LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A man has died in a construction accident at a downtown Lincoln parking garage, police said.

The accident happened Friday afternoon on the top floor of the garage, the Lincoln Journal Star reported.

Police Capt. Todd Kocian said a construction worker was assembling a metal form for a wall when the form fell on him. Police had not identified the man killed by mid-morning Saturday.

A condominium complex is being built next to the garage, and the top floor of the garage is being used as a staging area for construction crews working on the project.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate.
