Laramie man dies after falling into a fan

Authorities say a man has died from injuries he suffered when he fell into a fan while conducting tests
of a ventilation system at a state warehouse in Cheyenne.

The Laramie County Coroner's Office says 57-year-old Steven John
Mullen of Laramie died of multiple injuries when he fell into the
fan at the State of Wyoming Liquor Warehouse on Wednesday.

 Gov. Matt Mead issued a statement saying the news is deeply
saddening and his thoughts and prayers are with Mullen's family.
Mullen was owner of a heating company in Laramie that was working on the state
building.

The circumstances of Mullen's death are under investigation and
it may take up to eight weeks to get the results of toxicology
tests.
