SOUTH BRANCH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 64-year-old northern Michigan man has been killed by a falling tree.

MLive.com and WPBN-TV report Sunday that Robert Cieslak was cutting firewood in Wexford County’s South Branch Township Saturday when he was struck.

Friends searched Saturday afternoon for Cieslak and found his body in a forest after he failed to return home.

Sheriff’s officials say Cieslak was cutting more than one tree at a time and one of the trees toppled onto him.
