Pa. Man On Tree Trimming Crew Killed By Bucket Truck

CAMP HILL, Pa. (AP) – One man is dead and another hurt after a bucket truck apparently malfunctioned while they were trimming trees in a Harrisburg suburb.

The Cumberland County coroner said 53-year-old Michael Shaud of Middletown died after the bucket boom collapsed and struck him in Camp Hill.

A co-worker in the bucket was seriously injured when he was thrown to the ground. He was taken by helicopter for hospital treatment.

Authorities say Shaud was picking up debris on the ground when the bucket hit him.
