An accident on a northern New Jersey river has claimed the life of a tugboat worker from New York City. State police say Ricardo Young was fatally crushed early Sunday after he became tangled in some cables.

The 50-year-old Queens man apparently was trying to tighten the connections between the Turecamo Girls tugboat he was on and the vessel it was pulling along the Hackensack River when the accident occurred around 2 a.m.

His body was later taken to a nearby dock in Secaucus.
