The victim has been identified as 35-year-old Jonathan Maust of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.
The fatal incident occurred around 1 p.m. Monday at the former Cheltenham Mall on the 2400 block of Cheltenham Avenue, which is currently under construction.
Police say Maust, along with two co-workers, were attempting to relocate a large safe deposit box inside an old Wells Fargo bank.
They placed it up on a lift. That's when, police say, it fell onto Maust.
A special operations unit was called in due to the size and weight of the box.
Action News has learned Maust leaves behind a wife and child.
