SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas City, Kan., utility company is investigating reports that a downed power line at a public park was left unattended for more than 11 hours before a man was electrocuted.

The Board of Public Utilities is trying to determine when it was notified and who received the calls that a power line was down after a storm Saturday hit Rosedale Park in Kansas City, Kan.

Twenty-seven-year-old Nicholas Moeder of Shawnee died after tripping over the wire while playing disc golf early Sunday.

The Kansas City Star reports that (http://bit.ly/11ludLN ) a volunteer at a disc golf tournament says he called 911 about the power line at 4 p.m. Saturday. Tournament officials say they called BPU three times around 10 p.m. Saturday after noticing the line was still down.
