CHINATOWN, Manhattan — A man was killed by a falling safe in a Chinatown building on Sunday, police said.
The safe, which weighs 600-1,000 pounds, fell as the victim and two other men tried to bring it up three flights of stairs in a Mott Street building, an NYPD spokesman said. The victim died after he was pinned by the safe.
Officials have not yet identified the victim.
Police officers brought in a jack to remove the safe from the building.
