Saints groundskeeper dies in training facility accident

METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints' grounds superintendent was electrocuted Tuesday when a goal post he was moving hit a power line at the team's training facility in suburban New Orleans.

Tim Fletcher, 42, was married and had a son, team owner Tom Benson said.

Neither the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office nor the Saints would comment on the accident.

Fletcher started working for the Saints in 1999. Benson described Fletcher as enthusiastic and friendly.

"Tim was a terrific employee. ... His personality filled our hallways and offices with laughter and he always made a special effort to make everyone feel like part of the team," Benson said.
