Did you think you were having a bad Monday? A man has been crushed to death after an SUV fell from a lift at a parking garage in New York City today, according to authorities.

The unidentified man was at Icon Parking in the Tribeca area of lower Manhattan around 8 AM this morning when he was crushed to death.

Emergency crews quickly responded to the incident, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the New York Fire Department.

Authorities had yet to say whether the man worked at the garage or was leaving his car at the parking spot. 


Icon Parking is one of the most popular garage companies in the city, with over 200 parking locations built in its 50 years of operation.

Anyone who lives in New York City could tell you how sketchy those car lifts look, and that garages that use traditional structures are much more reliable.
