Glenora man dies after tree-falling accident
An 83-year-old Glenora man died Tuesday after a tree he was falling landed on him as he worked.
RCMP spokesman Cpl. Kevin Day said police were advised of the accident at 11:20 a.m. Tuesday.
“The 83-year-old male who resides on Marshall Road was a logger at one time in his life, so he was not inexperienced, but he had been cutting a mature, large tree, and he had it leaning up against an excavator so it wouldn’t fall on him, but the excavator slipped.
“Tragically, he was pronounced dead at the scene.”
The man was alone at the time of the incident, but his family was in the house. He was discovered by his neighbours, Day said.
