SC tree trimmer dies from head injury after fall

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A deputy coroner says a 34-year-old man has died after falling while trimming trees along a South Carolina road.

Greenville County deputy coroner Tony Segars told The Greenville News that Herbert J. Redding died Saturday morning.

Segars says Redding was about 30 feet above the ground when he fell. Redding was using safety equipment, but investigators say the tree may have been rotten in the middle and given way.
