Authorities are investigating a workplace accident that left a 23-year-old Minnesota man dead.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office says they were called out just before 11 a.m. Thursday for report of a person who was not breathing.

The victim, 23-year-old Michael Mousseau of Bertha, was taken by ambulance to a Wadena hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities say Mousseau was working for R.D. Offutt Company on a high voltage electrical cord for potato unloading equipment when they believe he was electrocuted.

The case remains under investigation.
