(AP) A Summerville man has died after a tree limb fell on him.

The Dorchester County coroner's office says the victim was 43-year-old Jason Couch. Coroner Chris Nisbet says Couch's wife found him around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

An autopsy was planned Thursday.

Nisbit says he thinks the limb had been loosened by last week's winter storm. Seven people died in South Carolina as a result of the storm.
