Tree Trimmer Dies Near Boynton Beach After Falling Over 40 Feet From Ladder To Avoid Power Lines
A tree trimmer suffered fatal injuries when he fell over 40 feet as he tried to avoid power lines, according to the ABC 25 WPBF website. The work-related accident occurred the morning of Friday, September 18, when the ladder of 27-year-old Nicholas Vitrano began to fall near surrounding power lines west of Boynton Beach. The worker was using a chain saw to trim trees when the ladder began to fall, so he pushed off the ladder to avoid contact with the power lines, says a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant. Following the Palm Beach County accident, the injured worker was taken via helicopter to Delray Community Hospital, where he died. At Injury Law Service, we express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Nicholas Vitrano. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
