MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A northern Minnesota man died Tuesday morning, officials say, after his jacket got caught in a large door at his work.

It happened at Bagley Hardwood Products at around 8:40 a.m. The 41-year-old Fosston, Minn., man was standing next to a 40-by-20 foot bi-fold door as it opened. He got caught in some cables and pulled up to his death, the Bagley Police Department said.

Police and OSHA are looking into how the accident happened.

The man’s name is being withheld until his family is notified of his death.

Bagley is about 30 miles west of Bemidji.
