Climber falls 60 feet out of a tree in California

46 year old Joey L. Perkins fell about 60-75 feet out of a tree. Their are conflicting reports on how the accident actually happened. One report says that Perkins was “topping” a tree when the base of the tree snapped. A second report detailed that Perkins fell out of the tree and a section of the top of the tree fell on him after he hit the ground. Both reports say Perkins fell to his death. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Joey Perkins was contracted independently by Four Seasons Tree Service, just for that day. Cal/OSHA is investigating the accident. We will update as more details become available.
