Man Killed in Tree Cutting Accident
A 76 year old Jacksonville man was killed earlier today (11:45am) while working to cut down a tree. The accident happened at 1150 Blanding Blvd, the property of Awakenings Church.
Victim Alfred Ansley and his brother, 66 year old Lloyd Ansley also of Jacksonville, were using a bob-cat tractor to brace a tree that Alfred Ansley was cutting down. The tree shifted and pinned the bob-cat on top of the victim. He was transported to Orange Park Medical Center where he died.
Next of kin have been notified.
