A man who fell from a tree while removing it from the backyard of home in Rowley, Massachusetts – north west of Boston – on Thursday has died.
The man, David Bova, 34, of Meyer Tree Service was around 17 metres up working in conjunction with a crane to remove a tree, He was working in heavy rain when he appears to have fallen to the ground. The photos we have seen indicated that an aerial work platform was use at the time. We also understand that Bova was wering a harness and a helmet. At this stage this is all we know. The Essex County District Attorney’s office said that the matter remains under investigation.
