MARION TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 31-year-old logger has died after being found trapped under a tree in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.

The Charlevoix County sheriff’s department says in a statement that Charles Burkle of Wolverine was found pinned under the tree shortly before 8 a.m. Friday in Marion Township.

Authorities were called to search for Burkle around 1 a.m. and found him in a heavily wooded area that the department says had “very difficult terrain to conduct the rescue.”
