CAMP DOUGLAS, WI (MetroSource-WSAU) -- The Wisconsin National Guard says the worker who died at Volk Field likely was electrocuted. 

The Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs yesterday said that 40-year-old maintenance specialist Nicholas Janz died while installing runway light bulbs. A spokesman for the agency says Janz touched a live electrical source.

A formal cause of death will come once Janz's autopsy is complete.
