A New Jersey man died on Monday night after becoming trapped in a clothing donation box behind a Salvation Army Church in Bridgeton.

According to the South Jersey Times, police arrived just after 11 p.m. to find 50-year-old Joseph L. Hanshaw dangling from one of the boxes, having apparently become trapped in its door. The fire department required several minutes to dismantle the door, but it was too late: Hanshaw was pronounced dead at a nearby medical facility.

Authorities speculate that Hanshaw may have been attempting to access warm clothes or a place to sleep, calling it an "unfortunate and tragic death by misadventure."
