BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Police say a construction worker fell about six stories to his death from a building at the University of Vermont.

WCAX-TV reports that the man fell early Thursday from the top floor of a new residence hall under construction in Burlington.

Authorities say he was wearing a safety harness when he fell.

An investigation is being conducted to determine what happened.

The University of Vermont was founded in 1791 and is among the oldest universities in the U.S.
