Tokyo police said Tuesday that they are investigating whether the death was criminal or accidental.

Daigo Kashino, a 33-year-old theater-group actor, was rehearsing with several people at a downtown Tokyo studio Monday when the incident occurred. He was rushed to a hospital, but died hours later.

Media reports indicated nobody was watching what exactly happened or how it happened.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK reported that other members of the theater group rehearsing with Kashino said they saw him hunched over as they turned around after hearing him groan.
