HENDERSON — A 53-year-old Henderson man died Friday from head injuries he suffered when he was cutting firewood on private property about a mile west of Henderson.

Sibley County deputies responded to a call about 12:30 p.m. reporting the accident near 26338 351st Ave. David John Bach was pronounced dead at the scene.

Christopher John Bach, 22, was operating a Bobcat with a tree in its grappler and his father, David, was cutting branches, when the tree slipped out of the grappler. As the tree swung around, a branch struck David Bach's head.
