Man Killed By Tree Limb In Venango County

An Oil City man was killed Sunday evening when a large branch fell on him.

The Venango County Coroner tells KDKA that 46 year-old Brendan Beck was killed around 10 p.m.

Beck was working with his father-in-law's tree service company helping to remove a large tree from a house on Paul Revere Road in Oil City when a large gust of wind caused a branch from a nearby tree to fall on him.

Beck was holding a light on the tree the company was called to remove.

He died at the scene.
