Severna Park man, 64, dies after falling from 20-foot ladder


A 64-year-old Severna Park man died yesterday in a tree-trimming accident, falling from the top of a 20-foot ladder, county police reported.

The victim, Thomas Francis Degnan, was pronounced dead on the driveway of his home in the 100 block of Northway about 3:30 p.m., police said.

A tree limb that he and a neighbor had been trimming fell and knocked Degnan from the ladder, and he appeared to have died instantly from a head injury, said Officer Charles Ravenell, a police spokesman.
