Posted on Thursday, September 19, 2013 7:46pm


A Ventura County man died after falling from a tree during a tree trimming operation at a miniature golf course.

The accident happened just after 8 a.m. yesterday, on the 5000 block of Walker Street in Ventura.

Ventura firefighters say Nicholas Rojas was working in the tree when part of it broke, and he plummeted to the ground.

The Fillmore man died at a hospital about five hours after the accident.

CAL-OSHA investigators are trying to determine exactly what led to the accident.
