MASSILLON, Ohio (AP) - Officials say a 71-year-old man was killed after unhooking a trailer from behind a semi-truck in a northeast Ohio parking lot.

Rick Walters, an investigator with the Stark County Coroner’s Office, says the Findlay resident got tangled in the wheel system of the rolling trailer and was found dead at the scene Thursday in Massillon.

Walters says the incident occurred between 5:15 and 5:30 p.m.

The Repository newspaper in Canton reports (http://bit.ly/1DRMANE ) Walters declined to identify the man because family members had not yet been notified of his death.

The body of the man was transported to Affinity Medical Center for an initial examination. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.

Walters says the man was picking up bread at a local bakery to be used as chicken feed.
