Man killed in tree-cutting accident

TOWN OF FRANKLIN, Wis. (AP) — A Manitowoc County man who was injured in a tree-cutting accident over the weekend has died.

A WOMT-AM report says 73-year-old Lee Fischer was cutting down a tree Saturday at about 9:15 a.m. when part of the tree fell on him.

The Whitelaw man was taken to a hospital, where he died. Autopsy results released Monday say he had injuries to his chest and spinal cord.

No foul play is suspected.
