A man making repairs to a van was crushed to death when the vehicle apparently slipped off two jacks and pinned him underneath. Police found 52-year-old Jesus Cruz when they responded to a 911 call at his Long Beach Township home late Saturday morning.

The officers and some people at the home helped free Cruz and he was taken to a nearby school, where a helicopter was waiting to fly him to a hospital. However, he was pronounced dead there shortly before the helicopter was to take off.

It was not immediately clear what caused the van to fall.
