UPDATE: Mason Co. Logging Accident Kills Man

A man was killed when the logging crew he was a part of was cutting down a 50 foot tree in Mason County near Eden Township Friday afternoon.

The crew was working on the tree when it dropped and hit another tree, sending a 5-foot-long piece back and hitting John Short in the head. Short, of Whitehall, died as a result of his injuries.

Emergency crews needed ATVs to help them get to the scene because of the rough terrain.

The incident is still under investigation.
