    L&I officials say a worker was killed after a possible electrocution in the Parkside section of the city.

    Licenses and Inspections Commissioner Carlton Williams told NBC10 they received a complaint regarding an incident at a property on 4100 Parkside Avenue on Wednesday.

    “We responded to the scene and were informed that a male worker was found unconscious from possible electrocution,” Williams said. “We later learned that the person was deceased.”

    Investigators have not yet revealed the man’s identity or the cause of death. L&I officials contacted OSHA who will conduct an investigation.

    According to Williams, a make safe permit was issued back on July 23 of last year to fix the floor of the property where the worker died. Williams says the floor was unsafe and the ceilings had partially collapsed.

    Williams also told NBC10 that a permit was issued to Dagan Construction LC to fix the floor joists of the property back on May 12.
