A 36-year-old worker who fell from a tree and had a large branch land on him in Woodlawn has died, Ottawa paramedics say.

Police, paramedics and firefighters were called to 3600 Stonecrest Rd. just after 1:30 p.m. Tuesday after a commercial tree felling worker suffered critical injures after a fall from a tree.

They found a branch also fell with the worker and landed on him at the home in rural west Ottawa, police said.

Firefighters were able to pull the man from underneath the branch and paramedics took over treatment with aggressive CPR, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
