CHICAGO - Police say an elderly man fell down a trash chute and died.  The man died at a senior living facility.

A custodian at the Belmont Senior Apartments found the 90 year-old man wedged in a garbage chute.  The chute runs the entire height of the seven-story building.  Residents say the chute has a spring-loaded door and isn't very large.

Police aren't sure whether the man's death was an accident, so they have launched an investigation.
