A man in Palm Harbor is dead after he was impaled by a tree branch.
63 year-old Dan Butts was clearing trees from his back yard on Leprechaun Lane when the accident happened.
Deputies say Butts cut one of the trees with his chain saw. That's when his girlfriend, Beverly Drew, got into a Ford SUV and began pulling the tree with a rope.
Suddenly, she heard a scream and saw the tree had fallen and that a branch had impaled him.
She called 911 and tried CPR.
When emergency workers arrived, Butts was dead.
Deputies say it appears his death is accidental, but the investigation continues for now.
