Accidental Death

Washington Township Police Department responded to a residence on Scenic Falls Road in the Long Valley section of the township regarding an accident where a 66 year male (who has not been identified as a result of notification to family) had become injured while cutting a tree with a chainsaw.  As the 40 foot tree fell, the victim’s lower leg became pinned between the stump and the cut portion of the tree.  Police, Fire, and First Aid units arrived on scene and were able to free the victim.  He was flown to Morristown Memorial Hospital by medi-vac.  He later died from his injuries.
