A Virginia man has died after being injured cutting a tree in his yard.
Officials say 44-year-old David Miller was cutting the top off a tree at his Fredericksburg home when he was pinned between the section he'd cut and the trunk. He was pronounced dead Saturday at Mary Washington Hospital.
Fredericksburg Fire Department spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe says Miller was about 30 feet up the tree and wearing a safety harness when the accident occurred. He was conscious and able to communicate with firefighters, but slipped into unconsciousness.
