Authorities have released the name of a 44-year-old southwestern Michigan killed in a tree-cutting accident.
Mlive.com reports Sunday night that Frank Andrew Schaefer of Van Buren County's Columbia Township had been cutting down several trees Saturday afternoon when a tree he'd just felled knocked a limb off another tree.
The sheriff's department says the limb fell 25 to 30 feet and hit the man in the head. His wife called 911.
He was airlifted to Bronson Methodist Hospital in nearby Kalamazoo, where he died.
Sheriff's officials had withheld Schaefer's name until family members were notified.
