An elderly man was killed Tuesday in Decatur County when the tree he was cutting down fell unexpectedly.
According to reports from the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department, 74-year-old Alvin U. Wuestefeld of Greensburg was working to cut down the tree, damaged in a storm. As he worked on an offshoot of the trunk, the main tree suddenly gave way. His brother-in-law was on the scene to call authorities.
Wuestefeld was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
