ARLINGTON (AP) - A billboard worker has died after falling about 30 feet from a sign near Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office on Tuesday identified the victim as 40-year-old John Burnette of Boyd.

Arlington police say the accident happened around midday Monday. Lt. Pedro Arevalo says Burnette apparently lost his footing and fell to the ground.

Burnette was declared dead at an Arlington hospital.

Investigators did not immediately say whether Burnett was wearing a safety harness.
