Police: Burglar Accidentally Turns On Large Fan, Kills Self
A suspected burglar in Miami was found dangling from a large ventilation fan after he apparently stepped on the on switch while his body was inside the machine and killed himself, according to police.
Miami investigators said a "known burglar" in the area was found dead in the powerful fan at the Maranatha Used Clothing store Thursday when the store opened up for business.
A witness said an employee of the store noticed feet dangling from the fan and called police.
Officers said they believe he was trying to scramble through the fan when his foot clicked a switch to the on position.
"If you are going to die for your profession, make it worthwhile," an officer told WSVN on the scene. "He was a known burglar."
