LONDON—A pop-up urinal crushed a man to death in London’s theater district on Friday, police said.
Firefighters used a winch to free a man after he became trapped under a hydraulic urinal at Cambridge Circus, a busy West End crossroads.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department, the man is believed to have been crushed while working on the retractable urinal. Police said he was pronounced dead at the scene “despite the efforts of emergency services”.
His identity has not been revealed.
Retractable urinals dot London’s red light districts, stored underground during the day and raised at night.
