SAN ANTONIO – Police believe a man was trying to reach into a donation station when he got himself stuck, and died on Tuesday.

  • Man dies after trapped in donation box
  • Found at North Woods shopping center
  • Pronounced dead at the scene

San Antonio police were called to the North Woods shopping center off Loop 1604 just after 5 a.m. A man was found stuck in one of the slots of the green education foundation donation station.

The small windows of the donation station are similar to a U.S. post office mail box.

According to police, the man got halfway into the box, but the weight of his leg most likely caused the door to swing back, clamping his head and neck.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Right now his death is being classified as accidental.
