The Anne Arundel County Fire Department is investigating the death of a man who died after a tree fell on him in Annapolis on Wednesday.
Division Chief Michael Cox said a contractor was performing tree removal work when it fell on him in the 1600 block of Homewood Road.
Cox said circumstances of the incident were still unclear, but that the victim was a man, believed to be in his late 40s or early 50s. It is not yet clear whether the death is related to the impact of the post-tropical storm Sandy.
Cox said the Anne Arundel County Police Department is investigating along with Maryland Occupational Safety and Health.
