Cal/OSHA investigating after man found unresponsive Friday afternoon

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health is investigating the death of a Pleasanton electrician in San Francisco's South Beach neighborhood last week, officials said Monday.

The electrician, who has been identified by the San Francisco medical examiner as 45-year-old Mose Bamont of Pleasanton, was found unconscious by co-workers at a construction site in the 200 block of Main Street around 2:45 p.m. Friday, according to police.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr. Bamont, an employee of San Francisco-based Metropolitan Electrical Construction, was doing electrical work at the time as part of renovations on the second and third floor of the Charles Schwab building at 211 Main St., according to Cal/OSHA spokeswoman Jules Bernstein.

The cause and circumstances of Mr. Bamont's death remain under investigation.
