A man was killed Wednesday on Nowhere Road in Madison County as he worked with a crew and a crane to cut down a tree.
Christopher Welch, 26, Watkinsville, was reportedly in the tree when a limb broke and he fell, according to Madison County chief deputy Shawn Burns.
“He was dead on the scene,” Burns said.
Burns did not know the name of the company with whom Welch was working. He said Welch was married and was expecting his second child.
