The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports ( ) medical examiner's office said Thursday that 50-year-old Frank Rogers was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident Oct. 31. Rogers was working on the car in the driveway of his home on Milwaukee's north side.

Neighbors who rushed over to help Rogers freed him from under the car after lifting it with another jack. The medical examiner says they applied CPR until paramedics arrived but attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.
