CUMBERLAND, Md. -- A man died after getting stuck in a window of his own Cumberland apartment, police said.

Carson Corum, 55, may have been locked outside his apartment and tried to climb in through the second-floor window, city police said Monday.

The death appeared to be accidental, Sgt. Charles Goldstrom said.

A neighbor called Monday to report a pair of legs dangling from the window, police said. The neighbor first spotted the legs Sunday but thought they were part of a prank and didn't call authorities right away.

The state medical examiner's office in Baltimore will determine the cause of death, Goldstrom said.
