(KSL News) -- An industrial accident killed an RC Willey employee this afternoon.
Salt Lake City police say a man in his twenties was working alone inside a warehouse. He turned up missing for a while, so a little before 1:00 employees went looking for him.
Det. Robin Snyder, Public Information Officer: "Some employees found him and called 9-1-1."
They found the man crushed to death. Several large, crated table tops had fallen on him. The employees moved the boxes off of the man. It's possible he suffocated while underneath the heavy load.
Right now, RC Willey officials and police are investigating.
