EAGAN -- A Holdingford man is dead following a workplace accident in Eagan last week.

The Eagan Police Department was called to 720 Vikings Parkway around 1:45 p.m. Wednesday for a medical emergency. A police spokesman says 18-year-old Aaron Welle was found unconscious and not breathing at a construction site.

Police say there was an electrical cord lying in a puddle next to Welle and authorities suspect he was electrocuted.
