Death By Tree Branch

61 year old James Baker-Jarvis was killed on Saturday in the Northern Rockies as high winds blew a tree branch through is Subaru Outbacks’ windshield.

The branch was about three feet long and three inches in diameter and struck Baker-Jarvis in the chest.  The man is credited with saving his wife’s life by being able to pull the car over and bringing it to a stop before losing consciousness.

Both were taken to a nearby hospital where she was uninjured, but the husband died from his wound.
