Tree Feller Falls To His Death: Tongaat - KwaZulu Natal
A 37 year old man was killed after he fell several meters while trimming a tree at a block of flats on Park Avenue in Desinagar, Tongaat a short while ago (Tuesday).
At approximately 11:32 members of Reaction Unit South Africa were called out to the scene after receiving a call from a member of public reporting the incident. Upon arrival the man was found lying face down on the ground. He had sustained a massive gaping wound to his head. Medics from a private ambulance service assessed the individual and found that he showed no signs of life and died at the scene.
It is alleged that the deceased was picked up on the roadside by a man running a tree falling & garden service business. They proceeded to the block of flats and were in the process of trimming the branch of a large tree when the branch broke (picture 2) resulting in him falling several meters to his death.
Police are investigating further.
