According to police, construction workers used pallet jacks to wrap metal material from inside the container. The contents were pushed to the open end of the container when a metal material, which weighed about 5,000 pounds, fell over the edge to a 30-year-old man who was one of the workers.

Lifesaving measures were taken, but failed and the man could not be resurrected.

At this time, no suspicious situation has been found. The case is classified as unmanned death.
