Police say a tree trimmer has died at a North Texas job site after his equipment came in contact with power lines.

Emergency personnel in Fort Worth say the 23-year-old man apparently was the victim of an accidental electrocution Monday.

A co-worker who witnessed the incident called 911. Power had to be cut to the neighborhood before authorities could remove the victim's body from the tree.

The name of the man who died was not immediately released.
