A Eudora man who was injured Monday in a fall inside the Lawrence Energy Center died early this morning at a Topeka hospital.

Robert "Sonny" Albright, 49, died at 2:20 a.m. today, said a spokeswoman at Stormont-Vail Regional Medical Center.

Albright, a foreman with Insco Industries Inc., Lenexa, suffered severe head injuries Monday morning when he fell about 30 feet while working in the KPL power plant. He was working on one of four contracting crews that are replacing insulation on the interior pipes at the plant.

Michel' Philipp, director of public information for KPL, said this morning that KPL's internal investigation into the fall was continuing. She said the incident also was being investigated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
