Police say a 71-year-old Sri Lankan immigrant who worked as a New York Police Department traffic enforcement agent had been killed by a truck as it pulled away from a parking spot in midtown Manhattan.

NYPD said that Kalyanarat Ranasinghe was pinned under the wheel and declared dead at the scene on Saturday afternoon. They said the 43-year-old driver of the truck remained at the scene.

His son-in-law said Ranasinghe emigrated from Sri Lanka about 20 years ago. He said Ranasinghe had been married for more than 50 years and had one daughter.

    Though he was very old, I think it's better to have the choice to work at this age than retire too early. Lots of older Sri Lankans can still add value to our economy if they wish, however our low retirement ages prevent them from doing so during their best years.
