MACON, GA (AP) -

Authorities say an autopsy is being planned for a railroad worker who died in a fall from a parked train in Macon.

The Telegraph reports  that 56-year-old Steve Warren of McDonough died early Monday morning.

Authorities say the Norfolk Southern employee fell off the side of the engine that was parked near Raines Avenue and Waterville Road around 2 a.m.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said it's expected that an autopsy will determine whether Warren suffered a fatal medical emergency that caused him to fall, or if he slipped and suffered a fatal injury in the fall.
