Vermont Man Dies in New Hampshire Logging Accident

A Vermont man was killed in a logging accident recently as he was working with a team to cut down and remove trees from a site near Sullivan, according to an article in the Keene Sentinel. The accident occurred in a wooded area off South Road near Hubbard Road.

When the accident occurred, the man was operating a skidder, which is a piece of heavy machinery used to drag cut trees out of a wooded area. A large tree smashed through the cab of the skidder, striking the man. His assistant called for rescue workers, but the man had died of his injuries by the time emergency medical personnel got to the scene, according to the New Hampshire State Police, who also responded.

Investigators are still examining the site of the accident for clues as to its cause. They are not yet certain whether the tree that crashed through the skidder’s cab was the same tree the workers were trying to take down with the skidder, or if the equipment got caught on another tree, which then came down. The man had been an employee of the logging company for about three years.
