Refrigerator kills Milwaukee man

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN (AP) - Police are investigating a bizarre death in Milwaukee.

A 33-year-old man was killed Tuesday morning when a refrigerator fell on top of him.

Police say the worker was part of a crew renovating an apartment building.

Apparently, his co-workers decided to toss the refrigerator off the balcony of the fourth floor, rather than carry it down.

They say they called out a warning but didn't hear a response.

Police are calling it an accident.
