Lufkin Police release identity of man killed in tree accident

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Huntington man was pronounced dead Friday night after being crushed by a tree limb at a Lufkin residence.

Johnathon Fagg, 25, was working with a yard and tree company at a Cimarron Street residence when the accident happened.

Sgt.. Rodney Squyres, a spokesman for the Lufkin Police Department says a tree limb fell on Fagg while he was trimming the tree. The victim was stuck 50 feet up, according to Steve McCool, a spokesman for the Lufkin Fire Department. It took emergency personnel about an hour to get the man down.

The Lufkin Fire Department brought in a fire truck with a bucket to reach the man. Squyres said emergency personnel had to cut the tree limb off of the man, so they could recover his body.
