A man is in critical condition after a refrigeration unit allegedly fell on him outside a Jersey City deli, police said. 

An officer patrolling in the area, reported the incident which occurred at the corner of Forrest Street and Martin Luther King Drive just before 12:10 p.m.

According initial reports, workers were reportedly unloading a refrigeration unit from a truck when the victim, who was across the street at the time, volunteered to help them.

The victim was transported to an area hospital with what authorities described as life-threatening injuries.

The incident remains under investigation.
