Bridgman Man Killed While Trimming Tree

A weekend tree trimming mishap has claimed the life of a man in Bridgman. The "Herald-Palladium" reports 65-year-old James Keltner died when a large branch broke off a tree and fell on him in the 31-hundred block of West Lemon Creek Road. Keltner was helping a neighbor trim some trees on Saturday. Baroda-Lake Township Police Chief Shawn Martin called it a "very unfortunate freak accident," and said the man was pronounced dead at the scene after the branch crushed him.
