Local Man Killed In Logging Accident 03 Dec 13

A Henderson man was killed in a logging accident Friday afternoon. The Sibley County Sheriff’s Office says 53-year-old David Bach was pronounced dead at the scene after a branch hit him on the head. Authorities say Bach’s son, 22-year-old Christopher Bach, was operating a Bobcat with a grappler attachment. Christopher Bach told investigators there was a tree in the grappler while David Bach was cutting branches off of it with a chainsaw.  As David cut one of the branches off the tree, the tree apparently slipped from the grappler, swung around, and hit him in the head at around 12:30 Friday afternoon. Bach’s body was taken to the Anoka County Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.
