EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — An Absecon man who suffered a freak injury Tuesday afternoon at a Walmart in the Farmington section of Egg Harbor Township succumbed to his injuries.

Witnesses in the parking lot helped move him from underneath the car, police said. McGowan was treated at the scene before being transported to the Atlanticare Regional Medical Center-City Campus.

He died in at the hospital on Wednesday following serious injuries suffered in the accident, police said.
