Roca Man Dies Days After Being Injured by Falling Tree


A 57-year-old Roca man has died four days after being hit by a falling tree.

Wade Wunderlich's wife found him lying injured on the ground Saturday on their 100-acre property west of Roca. A chain saw was idling nearby. The couple had been working for months to remove the tree from the property.

Rescue crews took Wunderlich to a Lincoln hospital with a severe skull fracture and brain bleeds.

He underwent surgery, but died Wednesday after he was taken off life support.
