FRANKLIN (AP) — An employee of the Cote Blanche Salt Mine in St. Mary Parish has died in an accident at the facility.

Peggy Landon, a spokeswoman for North American Salt Company, says longtime employee Michael Charles was part of a crew performing maintenance at the site when the accident happened early Wednesday.

Landon told KATC-TV that Charles was treated by emergency personnel at the scene, before being transported to Iberia General Hospitals. She says doctors there could not revive him.

Details of where and how the accident happened have not been released.

Landon says an investigation is continuing.
