Man dead after being hit by falling arcade game in Quebec City

QUEBEC — A 19-year-old man is dead after a boxing arcade game toppled on him in a Quebec City bar.

Police say they found the man suffering from a head wound around 3 a.m. in the city's Charlesbourg district. 

He was declared dead in hospital.

A spokeswoman for the Quebec City police department says investigators are trying to determine whether the death was accidental.

Melissa Cliche says police have heard contradictory versions of what happened and are still interviewing witnesses.

Criminal charges are possible if police determine the machine was pushed deliberately.
