KWTX's Paul Gately reported that a man from Waco died in a freak accident earlier in the week.

The man from Waco was homeless, and he had setup a spot under a tree to lay his head for the evening on Tuesday.

The man who has not been identified at the present time, had been living under a viaduct on 17th street, and recently moved to a new site not far away.

During that Tuesday night, brisk overnight winds in the area snapped a limb on the tree that fell on the man. Authorities have investigated, and said there was no foul play involved in the death of the man. The man was discovered on Wednesday by Dusty Kirk, who operates a homeless outreach program on Webster Avenue.
