A man was found dead Friday afternoon of an apparent electrocution inside an under-construction home near Coral Gables.

At 1:46 p.m., Miami police officers were dispatched to the home at 2744 SW 36th St., where they discovered the man’s body, said Kiara Delva, a department spokeswoman.

The man has not been publicly identified as police work to notify his family. It is unclear whether he lived at the home or was helping with construction, Delva said. Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reports that the man was found in the attic of the home.

Homicide detectives and employees of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration were still at the scene Friday evening.
