Kills Unadilla Man

UNADILLA – An 80-year-old Unadilla man was killed on his property after a falling tree struck him while he was logging, according to Trooper Aga Dembinska, Troop C public information officer.

William P. Marszal was clearing trees on his property on Ben McCumber Road last night with a John Deere 420 bulldozer. While skidding a downed tree, the downed tree uprooted another tree, which then fell on Marszal and caused head trauma.

Unadilla Emergency Squad and state police responded to the scene at 6:15 p.m., and Marszal was pronounced dead at the scene.

    I hate to be a critic but this was actually Wells Bridge Fire Dept / First Responders call. Mutual aid was recieved by Unadilla Emergency Squad.

    Really Mike Simonds? My grandfather was killed last night and this is what you have to write underneath? You should be ashamed of yourself. Have compassion.

    Grandpa, I love you forever!

    Lauren,
    How does Mr. Simonds’ response lack compassion? It was a comment about the writing error in who responded to your families call for help, nothing more and nothing less. No need to turn it into something it isn’t.

    Condolonces to your family.
