MIAMI (AP) - Authorities say a security guard has been crushed to death by a falling gate at the fairgrounds near Miami.

Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Robin Pinkard said in a news release that the man believed to be in his 70s was killed during an overnight shift at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition Center. Another worker found his body around 6:20 a.m. Tuesday and called police.

The man’s name hasn’t been released.

The center said in a news release that “we’re saddened by the death of our longtime employee from an apparent workplace accident.” The statement said they are cooperating with the police investigation.
