Monday, October 29th, 2012

CARRBORO, NC (AP) — Carrboro police investigating the death of a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill say the young man fell while scaling machinery at a concrete plant.

Authorities said that 18-year-old David Palmer Shannon died late Saturday night at the Ready Mixed Concrete Plant in Carrboro. Police said the first-year student from Charlotte fell about 17 feet, landing on a concrete pad below.

Authorities said Shannon had been seen drinking alcoholic beverages Friday evening and police said alcohol impairment was a factor in his fall. There were no indications of foul play.

Authorities are still investigating. The results of an autopsy are pending.
