Man dies after fall at worksite

Posted: Updated:
SHERMAN TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

A Gratiot County man died after he fell from a work project. The incident happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Michael Rempp, 58, of Elwell, MI, was working for an out-of-county private contractor, dismantling a feed mill leg at the Cooperative Elevator Company on Ruth Road in Sherman Township.

Rempp was about 60 feet up in the tower of that leg when, according to a witness, it appeared he accidentally fell through an opening in the tower to the ground, a Huron County sheriff press release said.

The Huron County Medical Examiner's Office responded and pronounced Rempp dead at the scene.

Arrangements for an autopsy are still being made.
