CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say a Chicago man was killed when a commercial coffee machine he was setting up toppled onto him near a park.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office says 48-year-old James Karr died at a hospital shortly after the accident about 4:30 p.m. Saturday near Grant Park.

Police say Karr lost his balance and grabbed the machine in hopes of steadying himself, but the machine fell onto his head and chest.

The medical examiner’s office says an autopsy Sunday determined that Karr died of multiple crushing injuries. That office classified the death as an accident.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
