GASTON COUNTY, N.C. —
A logger died in an accident this Friday morning in Gaston County. The logging crew was cutting down trees around 9 a.m. in a wooded area on Blacksnake Road near Chestnut Street in Stanley when the base of the tree landed on top of him as it fell. Emergency responders arrived and found Michael Scott Wyatt, 35, of Gastonia, deceased.
Workers at the site tried to free Wyatt from underneath the tree but he had already succumbed to his injuries, police said. It is still not clear how it happened, but OSHA is investigating the incident.
