MOA Parking Lot Death 06 Aug 12

Authorities have identified the man who died Friday when a concrete slab fell on a truck in a Mall of America parking ramp. 52-year-old Raheem Aaron Waheed died after the U-Haul truck he was driving hit an overhang, causing part of the parking ramp to fall and crush the truck’s cab. Waheed was trapped in the truck and died at the scene. Witnesses tried to help free Waheed from the truck, and some reportedly tried to comfort him in his final moments. Waheed’s wife and daughter – who were also in the vehicle – suffered injuries. Authorities closed down the parking ramp, and crews were working to reinforce a small portion overhead where the concrete broke off.
