SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- We now know the name of the R.C. Willey employee crushed to death yesterday.
Police say 24-year-old Travis Nielsen was killed at a R.C. Willey Warehouse in Salt Lake City. They say six tabletops -- weighing a total of 18-hundred pounds -- fell on him.
Authorities say they aren't sure how much time exactly passed before workers found the man. They pushed the tabletops off Nielsen and called 911.
Nielsen was pronounced dead at the scene.
Salt Lake City police spokesman Dwayne Baird said there was no evidence of foul play.
