Falling tree limb kills Northern Tree Service worker in Ramsey

A falling tree limb killed a worker who was helping to cut down a tree in Ramsey Wednesday afternoon.



Neighbors say workers from Northern Tree Service were cutting down a tree along Peach Hill Road around 3 p.m. The limb they had just cut fell nearly 100 feet, striking one of the workers.



Neighbor Kyu Lee says the other workers were distraught and tried to perform CPR to save their co-workers before emergency services arrived.



"I heard the other employees shouting and crying," says Lee.



The man was taken to the hospital, but later died from his injuries.



His name and age were not immediately released.



The Bergen County Police Department is investigating the incident.
