A man was killed when a tree fell on him while he was talking to a neighbor in the Los Angles area on Saturday morning, authorities said.
KTLA reports it was not immediately clear what prompted the tree to fall, but the fire department responded to the scene after receiving a a call of downed power lines around 8:30 a.m.
A neighbor told KTLA that Calderon said “hi” to her right before the tree — which was located on her property — fell on him.
“All my neighbors came out and we were pulling away at the branches to get to him,” said Rose Cordova. “I was yelling his name, calling him and calling. No response.”
