— Authorities say an Arkansas man died after falling 200 feet from the top of a cell phone tower in Leland, Miss.

Shane Dushen, a 28-year-old from Little Rock, Ark., fell from the tower near U.S. 82 at about 3 p.m. Tuesday. An autopsy was scheduled.

Authorities are trying to figure out how Dushen fell to his death when he was wearing a harness.

Washington County Coroner Methel Johnson says Dushen's co-worker said they had just finished eating lunch and were talking when Dushen simply fell from the tower.
