HOWARD, Wis. (AP) — One worker was killed and another injured when they fell from scaffolding at a Green Bay area paper company Thursday.

Officials say the two men were employed by Faith Technologies, a contractor at Hattiesburg Paper Co. in Howard.

The Brown County medical examiner's office identifies the worker who died as 41-year-old Michael Leroy of Appleton. An autopsy is scheduled Friday.

The companies issued a joint statement which said the injured employee is hospitalized in stable condition.

WLUK-TV reports the men fell about 30 feet from some scissors scaffolding at the paper plant.
