A man who fell into a trench at a construction site in Sun Valley died from asphyxia, authorities said Sunday.

He was identified as 28-year-old Misael Montoya of Panorama City, according to the coroner’s office.

Firefighters and paramedics were sent to the 8400 block of North Glenoaks Boulevard about 12:20 p.m. Friday, said Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“Sadly, the patient was determined dead on scene,” Stewart said.

Cal/OSHA was notified, and the circumstances of the death were under investigation, Stewart said.
