Jacksonville Beach, FL – 57-year-old Joseph English died of his injuries after falling off a ladder while trimming a tree. English who worked for Daddy and Girls landscaping, was trimming a palm tree on Saturday when he disturbed a wasp nest.
A co-worker said she heard English yell and when she looked up, she saw him drop a hand saw he’d been using. English was trying to come down the ladder rungs when he appeared to let go and fall backward. He fell onto a brick pathway next to a driveway of a home at about 2:30 PM.
English died Sunday at Memorial Hospital, a day after he suffered severe head trauma, a broken back, and other injuries.
