BARNESBORO, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a western Pennsylvania man was killed when a tree he was cutting down fell on top of him.

The Cambria County coroner’s office said 37-year-old Jesse Snyder was using a chain saw to cut the tree on his Susquehanna Township property shortly after noon Saturday.

Coroner Jeffrey Lees said the tree began to fall but hit a nearby branch and was redirected toward Snyder, hitting him on the head.

Lees said he pronounced Snyder dead at the scene due to a head injury. The death was ruled accidental.
