BOYERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - State police say a deer hunter was killed in a fall from a tree stand in eastern Pennsylvania.

Police in Berks County say the body of 69-year-old Thomas Kane of Hereford was found by relatives Tuesday night below the 30-foot-high stand in District Township.

Police said Kane was pronounced dead at the scene of blunt force trauma, and the death was ruled accidental.

Assistant Chief Coroner Kurt Katzenmoyer told the Reading Eagle on Wednesday that Kane’s relatives became concerned when he hadn’t returned from hunting in the afternoon, so they hiked to the spot he had used for many years and found his body.
