A maintenance man at a US bowling alley has died after getting trapped in the pin-setting machinery.
The worker at Northwest Bowling Alley in Fairfield, Ohio, died after his clothes became entangled in the mechanism.
Police said it was not clear if the 53-year-old had been strangled or crushed by the machinery.
The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reported that the Butler County Coroner had been called to the scene after reports that the man had suffered major trauma.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration sent an investigator. Agency officials said they had had no any previous investigations at the bowling alley which has been in operation since 1976.
