Philip E. Zoldos was cutting wood near a pile of long logs around 5:30 p.m. outside his house on Lackie Road in Meade Township when one of them fell and landed on top of him.

Zoldos' wife was keeping an eye on him while he worked until she walked over to a neighbor's house and went inside. She went back outside 20 minutes later and found Zoldos stuck.

The neighbor ran over and pulled the log off Zoldos before starting CPR to try reviving him. The Kinde Area Fire Department and Central Huron Ambulance Service took over life-saving efforts, but Zoldos was pronounced dead about an hour after the accident was discovered.

The Huron County Medical Examiner's Office was planning to schedule an autopsy.
