Pleasant Valley, W.Va. (AP) -- A Fairmont man has died after being pinned between an aerial lift's platform and a crane.

Police say 48-year-old George Green was standing on the platform as he backed the lift out of a united rentals garage Tuesday morning.

The lift backed into a crane parked behind it, pinning green between the platform and the crane.

Marion County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Chip Phillips says Green died at the scene.

United Rentals declined to comment on the incident.

The body was sent to the medical examiner for an autopsy.
