Authorities are trying to determine what caused a mobile home to fall on top of a man and kill him while a foundation for the structure was being set up on a central New York property.
The Tompkins County Sheriff's Office tells local media that workers were doing the foundation for the trailer in the town of Newfield when it collapsed on the man Thursday. Bystanders and emergency responders pulled him from underneath the home, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officials won't release his name until relatives are notified.
Authorities say the initial investigation indicated the incident appears to be an accident. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be investigating.
