Falling tree hits, kills Arlington man

A rural Arlington man was killed by a falling tree Tuesday, May 24, at about 6:40 p.m., according to the Sibley County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office said Martin Ziesmer, 62, was attempting to herd cattle from a pasture with a four-wheeler because of the stormy weather when the tree fell on him. Rescue workers found him under the tree, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident occurred about four miles north of Arlington.

The Arlington Fire Department and Ambulance Service assisted the sheriff's office at the scene.
