A man removing a catalytic converter from a BMW was crushed to death when the car fell on him, an inquest heard.
Daniel Stephens, 25, from Pontypool in South Wales, had tried to take the valuable mechanical part from a vehicle in a car park along Porth High Street on August 12.
At 6am the car's owner approached his vehicle before driving to work, but found Mr Stephen's body mangled under the weight of his car.
was the car owner late for work?
Seriously though I wouldn't want to see anyone killed in such an incident, a trapped limb and arrest should suffice to deter them from further such crimes.
