MILWAUKEE (AP) – Police say a man was killed when a refrigerator thrown from an upper floor of a building in Milwaukee hit him.

Milwaukee police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz says a construction crew was clearing some contents of a building Tuesday when workers tossed the fridge off a balcony. She says they called out “All clear,” but one worker walked out and was struck.

Schwartz says it appears to be a tragic accident.

Chris Zortman, an assistant area director of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, says the agency is investigating and it could take up to six months to finish. She says she couldn’t answer any other questions.
