Tree falls onto worker, killing him

SOUTHGATE, Ky. (AP) - A tree has fallen onto a tree-trimming
service worker in northern Kentucky, killing him.

Highland Heights/Southgate Police Sgt. Samuel Hodge told The
Kentucky Enquirer the incident occurred at about 2:30 p.m. Monday.

Hodge said the victim was working with two other men in
Southgate when the large tree fell onto him. He said it took a tow
truck to lift the tree off the ground.

The victim's name wasn't immediately released because his family
members hadn't yet been told.

Police and the Campbell County coroner are investigating the
incident.
