State police say a 20-year-old man has died after apparently falling from a cellphone tower in Exeter, Rhode Island.

Troopers responded to a call for help at about 2:40 p.m. Thursday on Yawgoo Valley Road.

The state medical examiner also responded to the scene of what was described as "sudden death."

State police identified the man on Friday as Tyler Bresnahan, of Narragansett.

Police say he died as a result of the injuries he sustained from the fall.

It's not clear what he was doing at the tower.
