A tree worker died July 1, 2021, in Orlando, Florida, when a tree he was removing for a local church fell on him.
The church had hired a tree-trimming service to remove four oak trees on the property. The trees had lost multiple limbs recently and were considered a hazard. The 40-year-old male victim was cutting down trees when a large tree trunk fell on him.
First responders found the man pinned underneath a heavy oak tree, and the man had no detectable vital signs. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to WKMG-TV News 6 and Fox 35 Orlando reports.
