NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -- The landscaper who died after becoming trapped in palm fronds has been identified as Daniel Wynn Smith, 46, of Las Vegas, according to the Clark County Coroner's Office.
Smith became trapped by palm fronds high up in a tree. This is the second similar case within three weeks in North Las Vegas.
Fire Capt. Cedric Williams says firefighters from North Las Vegas and Las Vegas quickly reached Smith who was trapped more than 25 feet up in a tree about 2 p.m. Sunday in a neighborhood near Owens Avenue and Pecos Road.
But Williams says he doesn't know how long Smith was stuck in the tree before firefighters were called.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
