The United States Postal Service confirms one of its employees died while on the job in Scott County.

In a statement, the USPS says, "The Postal Service, particularly the Georgetown, Kentucky postal family, mourns the loss of City Carrier Assistant Daniel Rosenbach and extend our deepest condolences to his family."

Scott County Coroner John Goble tells WKYT Rosenbach was delivering mail on Friday afternoon in Georgetown when he suddenly passed out. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Goble says an autopsy was performed in Frankfort on Saturday and it was determined he died from a heart attack.

The USPS confirms Rosenbach just recently started as an employee, with his first day being on May 12.

Goble says Rosenbach was 42 years old and leaves behind a wife and a seven-year-old daughter.

Goble says the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will further investigate the death starting on Monday.
