CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating a worker's death at a southwest Idaho factory.

The Ada County Coroner's Office says 30-year-old Ernesto Paramo Bernal of Caldwell died Monday of blunt force head trauma.

Authorities say Bernal died at a hospital about 90 minutes after falling onto a cement floor at Superior Steel Products.

The company makes steel and aluminum storage tanks.
