A worker at a northern Indiana plant has died after officials say he was apparently electrocuted while doing maintenance work inside the plant.
Ligonier police detective Sgt. Gary Cox says 55-year-old Mark A. Werbianskyj was found unconscious at Parker Hannifin's Ligonier plant late Monday night by co-workers who tried to revive him. Medics later pronounced him dead at the scene.
Noble County Coroner Joan Cripe says that an autopsy was completed Tuesday, but official results were not available.
Cripes says it's presumed that the Elkhart man was electrocuted. He was performing maintenance work at the time he collapsed at the plant about 40 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.
Parker Hannifin's website says its Ligonier location makes integrated sealing systems.
