VALPARAISO, Ind. — Authorities say a 50-year-old man has died after a tree fell on him while he was working in his yard in northwest Indiana.

The Porter County sheriff’s office says Allan Marschak was cutting trees Sunday in rural Jackson Township when one of the trees fell on him, trapping him underneath. Family members and emergency responders tried to cut back the tree to remove him, but Marschak was pronounced dead at the scene.

The coroner’s office and the sheriff’s office still are investigating the case.
