Authorities say a man has died from a fall at a suburban Kansas City industrial park.

Independence police said in a news release that officers found 58-year-old Michael Wrigley, of Independence, dead while responding Sunday to the Allis Chalmers Industrial Park. Police said the man worked at one of the businesses inside the facility and that his death appeared to be accidental.

The death has been reported to the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

"[The organization] said they are currently determining if an inspection will be opened into the incident. The business was closed at the time of the incident occurred," OSHA said in a statement.
