Default Palm Tree Kills Tree Trimmer

LOS ANGELES -- A tree trimmer crushed by a ring of palm fronds that slipped over him, pinning him to the roughly 70-foot tree, died Tuesday before Los Angeles firefighters could free him.

Firefighters sent about 9:25 a.m. to South San Pedro Street, near 48th Street, found the 23-year-old worker unresponsive, said d'Lisa Davies of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The worker was in a harness 50-60 feet up the tree when a heavy, ring-shaped section of fronds came loose above him, Davies said. It took more than 90 minutes to get him to the ground, where he was pronounced dead, she said.
