DANIELS, W.Va. (AP) - A professional tree trimmer fell 40 feet to his death Thursday afternoon.

Brian Keith Windgrove Senior of Beckley died after the top of the tree he was cutting fell at 12:30 p.m. and knocked him to the ground.

Raleigh County sheriff's Captain Gordon Gregory says the 42-year-old Windgrove was wearing a safety harness, but the falling tree apparently knocked it loose.

A resident had hired Windgrove to cut down seven trees on property in Daniels.
