MISSION, Texas (AP) — Investigators say a construction worker has died after falling about 20 feet at a South Texas site where crews are building a high school.

The Hidalgo (hih-DAL'-goh) County Sheriff's office says the accident happened Monday afternoon at a worksite for the Sharyland Independent School District in Mission.

Scaffolding was up at the site at the time of the accident. Investigators did not immediately release details on where the 47-year-old man fell or other circumstances of the accident.

The victim's name wasn't immediately released. An autopsy has been ordered.
