Shawnee Police are investigating after a 21-year-old died from injuries sustained at a FedEx Ground sorting facility Tuesday morning.

Police have identified the man as Nicholas Huston.

Johnson County Med-Act was called to the facility, located at 8000 Cole Parkway in southwest Shawnee, just before 8 a.m. on reports of a person injured after a fall. Before emergency crews could arrive, personnel at the facility reported that the injured man had stopped breathing. Security and other FedEx personnel conducted CPR until Shawnee firefighters arrived.

Captain Jodi Andrews of the Shawnee Police Department says, "upon arrival, officers found a male subject lying on the pavement."

Huston was resuscitated at the scene and said to be in critical condition with a head injury. Johnson County Med-Act, with the assistance of Shawnee Fire, rushed the Huston to an area trauma center where he later passed away as a result of his injuries.

Witnesses told police that the Huston had fallen out of a golf cart.

Major Bill Hisle says there were four men riding in a golf cart, when one fell out for some reason. Officers are still investigating exactly what happened.

Tuesday's accident is the third fatal incident at this same FedEx Ground sorting facility since March 2013. Links to previous Operation 100 News reports can be found below.
