A 40-year-old man was pronounced dead early Saturday after being found in a car atop the DeHart Street parking garage in Morristown.
The death is not considered suspicious, said Morristown Public Safety Director Michael Corcoran Jr. The deceased person’s identity was not immediately available.
An investigator from the Morris County Sheriff’s Office tried to revive the man.
Investigator Phil Masi was working a security detail at the garage and responded to a noise complaint on the top floor of the deck at 1:40 a.m., said Sheriff James Gannon. Masi found an unresponsive man in a Dodge Charger with the driver’s window open.
The investigator removed the man, detected no pulse, and applied CPR until an ambulance crew arrived, Gannon said. The man was taken to Morristown Medical Center and pronounced dead at 2:30 am, the sheriff said.
“My heart goes out to the family of the deceased,” said Gannon, who praised the investigator’s efforts to save the man.
