Bonifay Television Tower Accident

An Indiana man is dead after a weekend accident on WTVY's tower in Bonifay.

Workers with an Indiana company were trying to remove WDJR-FM's radio antenna so the equipment could be re-located to the station's new tower nearby.

But a spokesman for the Holmes County sheriff's department says the equipment somehow shifted and 30-year-old David Brown Jr. Of Evansville, Indiana fell about 500-feet to his death.

The accident happened about ten o'clock yesterday morning.
