AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW)- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration confirms an inspector has started an investigation into a man's death that is possibly related to a fall at the Kellogg's factory.

Chester Wright, 51, fell June 24th at the factory. According to the Richmond County Coroner's Office, Wright said he was fine immediately after the fall, but the next day, x-rays showed he had a fracture in his neck.

Wright started having respiratory problems, and doctors tried to perform surgery. Complications during the surgery forced doctors to stop.

The coroner says doctors told the family there was nothing more they could do. Wright died Sunday morning.

OSHA expects to have details about the investigation next week.
