LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A worker at a cement plant in southwest Louisville has died after falling down an elevator shaft.

The worker has been identified as Felipe Mata Fiscaya, a 37-year-old hispanic male. He was a contract worker with Personal Touch Contract Labor in Alabama. 

Mata Fiscaya died of multiple injuries from a fall of about 60 feet down the elevator shaft. He was born May 26, 1976. 

It happened just before 9:30 a.m. at the CEMEX plant at 15301 Dixie Hwy. That's when reports say a temporary worker with a cleaning service fell from the top of the shaft to the roof of the elevator on the ground floor about four stories below.

The incident was reported shortly after 9 a.m. EST at CEMEX in southwestern Jefferson County.

The incident was first reported as a rescue, but when crews reached the victim, he was dead.

There's no word yet on what may have caused the fall.
