The unidentified 52-year-old was found just before 5 p.m. inside the Penn Warehouse building on the 800 block of Christopher Columbus Boulevard, according to the Philadelphia Police.

The unidentified man was rushed to Hahnemann Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 5:30 p.m., police said.

Firefighters said they responded to the scene as a possible electrocution but that it wouldn't be entirely clear until an autopsy is completed.
