Man dies after being hit by falling tree in Faversham
A man has died after being hit by a falling tree in what police are calling an "industrial incident."
Kent Police said the 52-year-old was hit by the tree at a site near Painter's Forstal Road, Faversham, at about 12:15 GMT.
Air ambulance paramedics were sent to the scene but the man was pronounced dead a short time later.
A spokesman for the force said it was believed the man was working at the time.
He added: "Next of kin have been made aware and the Health and Safety Executive has been informed."
A South East Coast Ambulance spokeswoman said they sent a number of vehicles to the scene including the air ambulance and two road ambulances but "unfortunately efforts to revive the man were not successful and he was pronounced dead".
