Custodian found dead at Kennedy Space Center
Authorities in Florida are investigating the death of a custodian, whose body was found at a launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center on Tuesday afternoon, according to NASA. The man, whose identity has not been released, was found in a storage building near a liquid oxygen tank at pad 39A, one of the sites from which Apollo and space shuttle missions were launched, the space agency reported. NASA said the pad leader discovered the body, and paramedics, unfortunately, were not able to revive the man.
The custodian worked for the Brevard Achievement Center, which has a contract with the Cape Canaveral site. The Brevard center, which places people with disabilities in jobs, said it was “deeply saddened” by the news and extended its sympathy to the man’s family. A cause of death has not been released.
