LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say they're investigating the death of a worker at Walt Disney World Resort.

An Orange County Sheriff's Office news release says deputies found an unconscious and unresponsive man Monday morning after responding to a 911 call near Disney's Pop Century Resort. Reedy Creek Fire Department pronounced him dead at the scene.
