NYC woman dies after getting trapped inside clothing drop box

A New York City woman who climbed into a clothing drop box suffocated and died inside after the box's metal door closed on her head and trapped her Saturday, police said.

Melissa Mazzeo, 51, crawled into the large metal box on Staten Island about noon local time -- in an apparent attempt to steal the donated clothing.

Mazzeo was caught in the box's opening when the door swung shut on her head as she tried to climb out, cops said.

She died with her head outside the box -- which sits on Victory Boulevard near Clove Road -- and her body still inside.
