A Gainesville man fell to his death Sunday after attempting to remove a branch from a dead tree, Hall County sheriff’s officials said.

Hall County fire department responded to Vaughandale Circle at about 3:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon following reports that Demecio Riverra, 36, had fallen from a rotten tree, Hall County Fire Marshal Scott Cagle said.

He had been attempting to cut a branch from the top of the tree when the base snapped, Cagle said.

Riverra had no vital signs when officials arrived.

Hall County sheriff’s Maj. Jeff Strickland said the incident appeared to be accidental, though sheriff’s officials still are investigating.
