A 35-year-old man died Sunday after he was crushed by the bucket of a backhoe in Hauula.
Positive identification is pending.
Honolulu Fire Department Capt. Scot Seguirant said a mechanic was working on a backhoe when he became pinned between the backhoe and its bucket.
Four HFD units responded to 54-154 Hauula Homestead Road at about 1:25 p.m. and used extrication equipment to free the man, Seguirant said.
Emergency Medical Services treated and took the man to a hospital in critical condition.
Police said he later died from injuries.
