NEW YORK (AP) — A man has died after being crushed by a falling safe in Manhattan’s Chinatown.

Police say the unidentified man was found on the third floor landing of a building Sunday afternoon pinned underneath the safe.

Police believe the man was trying to move the safe up several flights of stairs in the Mott Street building when it fell on him.

Video shows an officer bringing a jack into the building to remove the safe.
