Homeowner killed by cut tree

A 73-year-old man was killed November 1, 2020, in Gaffney, South Carolina, when a tree he felled behind his home caused a second tree to fall and the second tree landed on top of him.

Bobby Wayne Bradley, Sr., used a chain saw to take down a large tree. The impact of the cut tree jarred the ground, causing another nearby large tree with rotted roots to give way. The second tree pinned Bradley to the ground.

He was discovered by his wife moments after the incident but was pronounced dead at the scene, according to The News & Observer and WYFF Channel 4 reports.
