A woman was killed trying to access a clothing donation box in California this week, authorities said. According to The Los Angeles Times, police found the unnamed woman dead and partially trapped in the doorway of a clothing donation box in suburban Los Angeles early Thursday morning.
Authorities reportedly arrived on the scene in the Santa Clarita area of Los Angeles around 9:58 a.m. and found the 61-year-old victim, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The report said the woman’s “upper body” had been caught in the door of a metal donation box. Lt. Dan Wolanski of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to the publication that the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
“She had crawled up there,” he said. “I don’t know if she lost an item in the bin or not, but she was reaching in there when she got caught.”
Details about the circumstances of the woman’s death and what was in the donation box are currently scant. The Sheriff’s Department is reportedly still investigating the circumstances of the woman’s death and does not know how long she was there until she was found.
The woman’s death is still being investigated, probably “accidental”
It has not been confirmed how long the woman was trapped in the box, KTTV reported. Police, who did not release the victim’s name, said there were no signs of foul play and no suspects have been named, according to KTLA-TV.
So far, this tragedy is being handled as an accidental death investigation, according to reports.
