Cheboygan County Man Dies in Logging Accident

A Northern Michigan man is dead after a Monday logging accident.

It happened Monday night just before 8:00 in Cheboygan County’s Benton Township.

When deputies arrived at the house, they found Zachary Trost unresponsive.

They say Trost was operating a logging clam when the clam’s boom hit a tree.

That caused two dead branches to fall and hit him.

They believe he died instantly.

Tonight on 9&10 News at 11:00, hear from Zachary’s dad about the kind of person he was.
