NBC NY News is reporting that a man was found unconscious under a mattress at the Hilton Garden Inn located on West 35th Street in Manhattan early this morning. He was later pronounced dead. Under a mattress is very odd indeed. Was he above the box springs, or was the mattress moved to the floor? Was he a registered guest? All we know at the moment are these sketchy facts:
Police are investigating the death of a man who they say was found unconscious with a head injury under a mattress at a hotel blocks from the Empire State Building.
Officers were called to the Hilton Garden Inn near Herald Square on West 35th Street at about 4 a.m. Monday. Police say the unresponsive man had trauma to the back of his head.
He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Investigators and medical examiners are working to determine how he died. Police think he was in his 30s.
