Refrigerator thrown from building strikes, kills man

By Ryan Haggerty of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Dec. 14, 2010 11:28 a.m.

A 33-year-old man who was part of a crew renovating a building on Milwaukee's west side was killed Tuesday when he was struck by a refrigerator his co-workers threw from the building, a Milwaukee police spokeswoman said.

Initial reports indicated the refrigerator fell four stories to the ground, where the man was struck.

The incident occurred about 9:40 a.m. at 811 N. 22nd St., police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said. The workers who threw the refrigerator said they yelled down to the ground but didn't hear a response, so they thought the area was clear, she said.

The victim apparently stepped into the path of the refrigerator as it fell, Schwartz said. No one is in custody.

"It appears right now just to be a tragic accident," Schwartz said.

The victim died at the scene. His name has not been released.

Sign of the times-- we live in a treacherous Age where even the appliances are turning lethal! :(

But, seriously, it does make you realize that, for most of us, our departure will be unforeseen and when we least expect it. "And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."

"Chmura and two co-workers were working on two apartments Tuesday morning. They already had tossed a water heater from a third-floor balcony and thought it would be amusing to toss the refrigerator from the fourth floor and watch it crash into the heater.

Chmura went downstairs and outside the building before the two others called down to him from the fourth floor.

Chmura answered that he was ready and jokingly said, "Go ahead, I'll catch it."

About the same time the refrigerator was pushed off the balcony, Chmura's boss called him on his cell phone."

"It was unknown whether he answered the call, but a broken cell phone case was found near Chmura, who suffered head trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene."
