From Jake Dorsey,

A man from Hillsboro, Ore., died Friday after a tree fell on him while he was hunting in the Blue Mountains near Heppner.

The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office said they received a 911 call at 11 a.m. Friday from someone who had been with the man but had to hike up a ridge to get cell service.

The caller said the 34-year-old hunter was hit by the tree in a heavily wooded area with a couple of inches of snow, and he was not breathing.

Before medics could get there, the caller told authorities that the man had died.
