A father-and-son tree cutting business was so new that they hadn’t had time to put a name on it.
Wednesday afternoon, Eddie Dwayne Waters, 57, of Rockmart, his son and two others were working on removing some trees, says Floyd County Coroner Gene Proctor. What happened next cost Waters his life:
A cut tree got hung up in some other trees.
As they moved it in an attempt to dislodge it, the cut tree fell, striking Waters and killing him instantly, says Proctor.
The accident was at 31 Orchard Spring Drive off Horseleg Creek Drive. Proctor pronounced him dead at the scene at 5:10 p.m.
