Medical examiner: Man found in rubble was tornado victim

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities say a man whose body was found in the rubble of a tornado-damaged building is the only person known to have been killed in a twister that struck downtown Atlanta.

Chief Fulton County Medical Examiner Randy Hanzlic says 45-year-old Gregory Lee's death resulted from blunt force injuries suffered in the March 14 storm.

Lee's body was found Saturday by workers clearing debris from a collapsed building. Police believe Lee was seeking shelter from the storm but never made it inside.

The twister struck the city with little warning, with winds gusting up to 130 miles per hour. At least 27 people were injured.
