Red Wing Man Falls to Death

A 27-year old Red Wing man died on the 4th of July after a tree climbing accident in Fleming Township, Aitkin, Minnesota.

The Aitkin County Sheriff’s Office reports Henry Cannon was celebrating the holiday with several friends and was climbing a large White Pine tree on the shores of Gun Lake. An estimated 2 inch diameter branch broke and he fell approximately 25 feet to the ground.

Cannon sustained multiple severe internal injuries and was transported by ambulance to Riverwood Hospital where he was pronounced dead after lifesaving efforts failed.

The body was transported to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office for further examination and toxicology.
