Tree lopping goes wrong, leaves one man dead near Monto

A 43-YEAR-OLD Builyan man has died in a tree-lopping accident south-west of Monto.

Workplace Health and Safety inspectors and Monto police are investigating the incident after the timber industry worker was found near Hurdle Gully Rd about 6.40pm Sunday.

It's believed the man's colleagues reported the man missing Sunday afternoon and he was later found dead with significant injuries as a result of being struck by a tree.

A police media spokesman said there did not appear to be any suspicious circumstances.
