A man has died following a logging incident on a private property at Whian Whian, east of Nimbin, earlier this week.
About 1:15pm on Wednesday 9 October, emergency services were called to the property off Whian Whian Road after a man was hit on the head by a falling tree branch.
The man sustained serious head injuries and was airlifted to Gold Coast Hospital in a critical condition. Just before 7.30pm last night, he was pronounced deceased.
A crime scene has been established and is being examined by specialist forensic officers and police from Richmond Local Area Command.
