MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A UW-Madison employee was killed Tuesday, after an industrial lift unit fell on top of him.

Campus police said the 62-year-old maintenance man was working at a loading dock at the Arts Loft Building, when the lift collapsed and fell on him from above.

The UW says its physical plant will investigate the left mechanism to figure out what caused the collapse. The man died at a hospital.

UW Police said his name would be released Wednesday, after an autopsy takes place.
