A 24-year-old man died after a concrete slab, weighing about 60,000 pounds, fell on him Tuesday at an American Fork construction site.

The death occurred about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at a site near 870 South and Automall Drive. A crane was setting up a different slab when it "experienced some trouble, to where it started to tip and roll," said American Fork Battalion Chief Doug Batemen.

"The boom section of the crane made contact with an already existing upright panel," which dislodged and fell on the man, Batemen said.

Police continued to withhold the victim's identity on Wednesday, saying not all family members had been notified of his death.
