It was a tree-cutting project that went horribly wrong on Wednesday, that led to the death of an East Texas man.

The Angelina County Sheriff's office confirms the man died when a tree fell on top of him at a rural site near Pollock.  Other workers were helping with the project at the time, and a 20-foot section of tree somehow collapsed on Lucio Vasquez of Groveton.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy is underway.
