56 year old Michael William Powell was helping a friend remove a tree that had been partially damaged from a recent storm. Powell’s friend told him to stand out of the way. Powell was on the opposite side of where the pair thought the tree would land. The tree twisted and went in Powell’s direction. The tree landed on him and crushed his head. Powell was standing 32 feet away from the center of the tree.
