A tree removal worker was killed after he was hit by a 4-foot falling limb at a nudist club in New Jersey.

BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Authorities say a tree-removal worker died after he was hit by a falling 4-foot limb at a nudist club in northern New Jersey.

Workers from Tamke Tree Experts were removing a large tree from the Sky Farm nudist club in Bernards Township on Wednesday.

Police Capt. Edward Byrnes tells The Courier News of Bridgewater (http://mycj.co/JX8QIu ) the limb, which weighed an estimated 40 pounds, fell about 70 feet, striking the worker.

The worker was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld until relatives are notified.

Byrnes says the worker was wearing a hard hat and safety gear.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.

Sounds like my SO's dad. He was cutting wood and the chainsaw hit something - probably a knot - and bounced back into his face. He put his hand up in time to stop it and, of course, slashed his hand. Also slashed his leg open with an axe cutting wood.

When my SO jumped on the couch and caught his head on a nail in the wall and was bleeding all over, he was going to stitch him up on the kitchen floor until Mom intervened, heh.
