Man dies after fall from moving vehicle


RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -- A 33-year-old Wausau man is dead after he fell off a moving vehicle while trying to hold a mattress down.

Emergency crews responded at about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday to Azalea Road near Sunshine Drive.

Police found the man not breathing and lying in the road. He was transported to a hospital with serious injuries and later pronounced dead, according to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities say the ties holding the mattress to the vehicle came loose. That's when the man went on top of the vehicle to keep the mattress from falling off.
