COPIAH COUNTY — Federal and local investigators are trying to determine the cause of an accident in which two workers fell to their deaths from a cellphone tower in Copiah County.

The accident happened yesterday afternoon at a tower on Mississippi Highway 27.

The Copiah County coroner says the men were climbing up the 300-foot tower and were about halfway up when they fell.

Randle Drane, of the Copiah County Emergency Management Agency, said the men worked for a Louisiana company. Their identities have not been released.

Copiah Sheriff Harold Jones said the men were trying to put new antennas on the tower when the accident happened.
