SC worker dies in 60 foot fall from bucket truck

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - A worker who was trimming trees has died after falling 60 feet from a bucket truck on the South Carolina coast.

Multiple media outlets reported that 48-year-old Bill Hucks of Galivants Ferry died about midday Wednesday.

Georgetown County Coroner Kenny Johnson says Hucks was trimming trees on Pawleys Island when he fell. A co-worker said Hucks leaned back and part of the bucket broke.
