AKRON, Ohio » Police say a 60-year-old man has been crushed to death at a machine shop in Ohio.

An Akron police spokesman said the accident occurred sometime between 10 p.m. Friday and around 4:45 a.m. Saturday, when co-workers found him. The spokesman says co-workers used a crane to lift a large metal frame off the victim.

The spokesman would not identify the man but said he lived in the Akron suburb of Green.

The accident occurred at Logan Machine Co. Calls to the company seeking comment on the accident weren’t answered on Saturday.

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration proposed $66,000 in penalties against the company in 2012 for eight serious safety violations and seven serious health violations.
