PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police have identified a man who died after falling from an escalator at the Providence Place mall.

Police say 45-year-old Joshua Martin, of Pawtucket, died Monday night after “fooling around” on the escalator and accidentally falling backward. WPRI-TV reports that police said Martin was “riding the rails” before he fell.

Martin fell from the movie theater level to the food court below just before 11 p.m.

He was taken to a hospital with head trauma and pronounced dead.
