WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) -- Delaware State police say a delivery man has been killed when a large package fell from a lift, crushing him.

It happened about 11 a.m. Monday in Wilmington. Troopers say the 43-year-old Baltimore man had begun to load a package containing a large piece of computer equipment from a delivery truck.

Police say the man put the package on the truck's lift. He then fell to the ground, and the package fell from the lift onto the man.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.
