POINT COMFORT, Texas (AP) — A contract worker has died after falling about 25 feet while doing routine cleaning at a Formosa Plastics Corp. Texas plant.

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday identified the victim as 26-year-old Christopher Adames of Port Lavaca (luh-VAH'-kuh).

The accident happened around midday Tuesday at the Formosa specialty PVC unit in Point Comfort, about 110 miles southwest of Houston.

A Formosa statement did not include the name of the company that employed the victim. Adames was dead at the scene.

Federal safety officials are helping investigate the accident.
