Posted: Updated:
SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) - San Angelo police have identified a man who fell 140 feet to his death while working on a downtown telephone tower.

A police statement identified the worker as 28-year-old Cody Freeman of The Colony, a northern suburb of Dallas.

Tom Green County Justice of the Peace Eddie Howard says the man died shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday while performing repair work on the tower. The San Angelo Standard-Times (http://bit.ly/1l1x3iQ) quotes a police statement as saying the man was having difficulty with his safety equipment when he fell.

The man's identity was being withheld until his relatives could be informed of the death, but police say he was a contract worker with Richardson-based MTSI.
