“Officials are investigating a fatal hunting related accident. It happened at about 7:30 p.m. Monday.
Officials with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission said 70-year-old George Olivo of Reidsville was killed from the injuries he suffered when the tree stand he was in fell to the ground.
Olivo was transported to Cone Health where he died.
"As a hunter myself, of course you never want to hear about it, both in my personal life and work life. Again, it's something that could happen to any of us," said North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission Officer Nathan Green.”
Always use safety harness.
