MANSFIELD, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 56-year-old Mansfield man who fell from a tree has died from his injuries.
DeSoto Parish sheriff's deputies tell The Times Ronnie Meshell died Sunday night at University Health in Shreveport.
Deputies say Meshell, who worked for a private contractor, fell about 20 to 30 feet from a tree he was trimming at a residence south of Mansfield Friday.
Lt. John Cobb says the harness Meshell was using to secure himself to the tree either snapped or broke.
