LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. — You know what they say about karma? But perhaps the spiritual principle may have gone a bit too far this time.

A man attempting to burglarize a home in Florida was killed when the window he was attempting to climb through slammed down on his neck, WINK reports.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office says Jonathan Hernandez was trying to gain access to the Lehigh Acres home when he was struck.

"While Hernandez was trying to work his way through the window, it unexpectedly closed on top of him, pinning him and keeping him suspended in air," Lt. Russell Park said.

Hernandez was dead when police arrived at the home.
