Mover, 19, dies after safe falls on him in Mountain Brook

MOUNTAIN BROOK, Ala. (AP) - Jefferson County authorities a Florida man has died after a safe that he was moving toppled onto him. The Jefferson County Coroner's office identified the man as 19-year-old Trayshawn Presha, of Sarasota, who worked for the moving company Atlas Van Lines. Deputy Coroner Bill Yates says Presha and other movers were using a dolly to move the safe along a ramp that wasn't long enough. Yates says the movers added a second unsecured ramp as an extension, which began to slide when the safe was on top of it. According to Yates, the other movers were able to get out of the way before the safe fell.{} Presha was rushed to UAB Hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased around 6:30 p.m.
