Man gets stuck in window, suffocates

COLUMBUS, OH Jack Kasler was found with his legs dangling from the window of his apartment in Columbus.

Franklin County Coroner Brad Lewis said Kasler was lying in a position where his diaphragm was prevented from contracting.

Lewis said it's not clear why the 45-year-old man couldn't push himself through the first-floor window or how long he had been hanging there before he died Friday.

The neighborhood is a high-crime area and police said a passer-by told them she didn't stop to help because she thought Kasler was a burglar. Someone else called police after realizing that Kasler wasn't moving.
