Police: Burglar Accidentally Turns On Large Fan, Kills Self

Local6 reports...
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."

I think I'd be looking for a lawyer... Accidents don't just happen. Obviously someone is at fault. There are probably a dozen kids to various mothers out there, that are now deprived of a father to provide financial and role model support. Someone must pay!

I love it! One less dirt bag in the world. Maybe I should install a few extra high speed fans in my place and then put some expensive stuff out in plain view.
