Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are investigating the death of a man who fell from a cellphone tower Wednesday morning in the midtown area near uptown.
Police said the body was found shortly after 7 a.m. by construction workers at a site between South Kings Drive and Cherry Street. That is near Charlottetowne Avenue.
Officer Jessica Wallin, a CMPD spokeswoman, said the case is a “death investigation.” Authorities at the scene said there was no sign of foul play.
The body was found near the base of a cellphone tower, inside the fenced-in site where an apartment building is under construction. It is unclear whether the man who died was working on the tower.
