A gas-line rupture killed a man near Turner Valley Thursday afternoon.

Alberta Health Services spokesman Stuart Brideaux said responders were initially called to a field near Highway 549 west of Turner Valley around 1:45 p.m. for reports of a man overcome by an unknown substance.

Officials with the M.D. of Foothills fire department initiated a response to determine what the substance was, Brideaux added, before an adult male was found dead at the scene.
