(KMOV.com) -- St. Louis County Police say an employee died of an apparent electrocution at a manufacturing plant in north St. Louis County on Wednesday.

Police said a worker of St. Louis Cold Drawn, Inc, located at 1060 Pershall, arrived at the plant around 4:15 p.m. and found the Mach Nguyen, 55, on the ground unconscious.

Nguyen was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

St. Louis County Police Officer Randy Vaughn said the death appeared to be an electrocution because Nguyen was found next to an electrical box. He said one of the coils contained burnt strands of hair.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he worked at the plant or was an outside technician there to make repairs.

Based on the evidence at the scene, the incident has been considered an accidental death. 

Cold Drawn is a maker of cold-finished steel bar.
