KAUFMAN (AP) – A North Texas man has died in the collapse of his apartment balcony.

Investigators say an engineer will examine all balconies at the complex in Kaufman, about 30 miles southeast of Dallas.

The accident Saturday killed 37-year-old Jose Martinez-Hernandez. Officials say the victim fell nearly 12 feet.

WFAA-TV reports residents say crews had been working on several balconies. Leasing officials did not immediately comment.
