AUGUSTA, Ga. -- A memorial service is planned for Saturday for the man found dead while working at an Augusta chemical plant.

The body of 62-year-old Isiah Scott was found Saturday on top of a railroad tanker car at General Chemical. Emergency workers were not able to revive him.

The tanker was filled with molten sulfur, but investigators say there were no signs of injuries or burns and that Scott was wearing the correct protective clothing.

OSHA is now investigating the death.
