CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – A landscaper was killed by a tree limb he was trying to cut down at a home in Chattanooga.

According to police, the man was a contractor hired by the resident at 623 Belle Vista Drive. He and an associate were in the back yard clearing wood debris and cutting branches from a tree.

A witness says the victim had winched the branch when it became stuck.  When the branch slipped free, it swung out hitting the victim in the head.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is not being released, pending his family being notified.
