Authorities says an electrician working at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida has died after being seriously injured while installing a temporary transformer.

Osceola County sheriff's officials say 50-year-old Steven Snyder of Davenport was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a hospital on Friday.

Snyder worked for Buena Vista Construction Company. Disney says he was installing the transformer to supply power to a tent that was under construction. A Disney spokeswoman said the company is grieving with Snyder's family, friends and co-workers.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been notified and authorities are investigating.
