Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200350247Event: 02/17/1997Employee Killed When Struck By Falling Tree
Employee #1 and coworkers were part of a logging crew harvesting timber that had been damaged by a storm. Many of the trees were already on the ground, and a skidder was being used to move them around so that Employee #1 could reach them with a chain saw to limb the tops. He was bent over a downed tree, facing the opposite direction, when another tree fell over and struck him on the back of the head. Employee #1 was killed. The tree that fell was rotten at the base, and it had two gouge marks made by the blade of the skidder.
