Worker dies while trimming tree in Annapolis

A worker died when he was struck and pinned by a branch from a tree he was trimming in Annapolis, Anne Arundel County Fire spokesman Lt. Erik Kornmeyer said Sunday.

Fire and police were called at 3:35 p.m. to the 100 block of Sunset Drive to find the man who was still harnessed 8 feet up in the tree after he died from his injuries, Kornmeyer said.

About an hour later, the special operations unit removed the unnamed man from the tree.

County police and the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health will be investigating the circumstances of the death, Kornmeyer said.
