PEABODY, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts say a man was crushed to death by falling boulders while working in his backyard.

Authorities say the 76-year-old was doing yard work in Peabody on Monday when a retaining wall gave way, causing large rocks to fall on top of him.

A crane was able to lift the boulders so crews could recover the body.
