CASSOPOLIS, Mich. (AP) — An Indiana man power-washing the exterior of a southwestern Michigan church has died after coming in contact with an electrical line.

The contracted employee was in a bucket lift Saturday afternoon outside St. Ann's Catholic Church in Cassopolis when he was electrocuted.

Police say the 65-year-old man was from Bremen, south of South Bend, Indiana. His name has not been released. Cassopolis is just north of the state line with Indiana.
