Man killed by falling tree near Lake Hodges in apparent work accident

A man was killed by a falling tree, possibly while being cut down or being cut down, on Friday afternoon near Lake Hodges, authorities said.

The fatal incident happened around 4:20 p.m. on Thorn Lane, a short residential road between Lake Drive and Del Dios Road along the west shoreline of Lake Hodges, said San Diego Sheriff Lt. Ryan Wisniewski.

Authorities believe workers were pruning or cutting down a tree when the tree, or part of it, fell on a man, Wisniewski said. Deputies and ambulances responded, but the man died on the spot.

Wisniewski said the California Department of Occupational Safety and Health – Cal / OSHA – will handle the investigation along with the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

No other information about the incident or the victim was immediately available.
