Man dies while trimming palm tree

He was found stuck 30-ft up on the tree

A US man died after he became tangled in a palm tree while trimming the branches, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The 35-year-old was working in the tree about 5pm local time when he became caught in the tree's branches.
Los Angeles County Fire Captaineve Lopez said firefighters responded to a report that the man was in distress.
Upon arrival at the scene, they were unable to locate the man in the tree. They used a thermal imagery device to find him.
He was found stuck 30-feet (9m) up in the tree, and was unconscious. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Lopez said the coroner's office is working to establish the cause of the man's death.
