MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A man trapped under a truck in Memphis died before first responders could get him medical attention.

Memphis police say they found the man's body around 3 p.m. in the 300 block of Dixie Road.

Police say it appears the man had his truck jacked up to work on it, and somehow it fell on him.

"Well it's kind of tragic," said neighbor Wiley Kearney. "But you know I hate to hear about it happening and things. You know, he just lost his cousin about a week back. It's just a tragic thing."

Dispatchers say the trapped man may have been stuck under the truck since Sunday.
