A GoFundMe page was launched in memory of an Ambridge man who may have been electrocuted at an Ambridge pipe plant.

The page for David Bupp, 46, surpassed its $30,000 goal by about $1,300 Thursday evening.

More than 360 people donated. The funds will be used for funeral expenses and to help his daughters through college, according the post.

Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office said the electrical worker came into contact with an electrical current along the 2000 block of Duss Avenue around 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, and was transported to Heritage Valley Sewickley where he later died.

Harmony police and OSHA, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, are investigating.

Police said Bupp was working on a control panel box and later found lying on the ground.

Authorities said an autopsy’s scheduled for Friday to determine the cause and manner of death.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
