Worker found dead at Kennedy Center launch pad

Custodial worker found dead at Kennedy Space Center launch pad used for final shuttle liftoff By The Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) ' A custodial worker has been found dead at a Kennedy Space Center launch pad.

The male worker was found Tuesday afternoon in a building located under the liquid oxygen tank at the same pad used for the final shuttle liftoff last summer.

NASA spokesman Allard Beutel says no cause of death was immediately known, and the man's identification was not made public pending notification of next of kin.

The man worked for a contractor that performs custodial work at the space center.

The launch pad is considered a construction zone because of decommissioning work being performed there.
