ST. FRANCIS, Wis. (AP) - A 69-year-old man has died in a tree-trimming accident in a Milwaukee suburb.

Police Chief Tom Dietrich says the father was standing on a stepladder and was knocked down.

Dietrich says paramedics arrived to treat the man, but he died.

The name of the victim was not immediately released.
