News On Japan reports: Man found dead in Tokyo after being swept up by street cleaner
A man has been found dead at a garbage sorting facility in Tokyo's Koto Ward, and police suspect he was accidentally caught by a street cleaning truck.
The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) said the body of a man was found Oct. 16 and it is questioning a 34-year-old street cleaner driver on suspicion of negligent driving resulting in death. "I didn't notice anything at all," the driver was quoted as saying.
MPD officials said that the body is believed to be that of a 69-year-old man from Sumida Ward after bloodstains and his shoes were found near his home on a road swept by the street cleaner.
