Man dies from injuries after falling from tree

  • He was attempting to prune the tree in a residential estate in Alhaurín el Grande

A man in his fifties died from his injuries last week after falling five metres from a tree he was attempting to prune in a residential estate in Alhaurín el Grande.

It appears that the man, who was president of the community in which the tree was located, attempted to carry out the job because the gardener failed to turn up.

The van driver who arrived to take away the branches found the man, who had suffered a blow to the head, and he was taken to Carlos Haya hospital in Malaga where he died a day later.
