STONY POINT, N.Y. -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined a Stony Point company $25,350 in connection with the death of a New City tree service worker killed by a falling limb last fall in New Jersey.

Oscar Salazar, a 30-year-old father of two, was working with Northern Tree Service, servicing the Peach Hill Townhouse Community in Ramsey, when the mishap occurred on Oct. 13, authorities said.

Members of the Ramsey Police Department and Ramsey Ambulance Corps administered first aid for upper body and head injuries, Ramsey Police Chief Bryan Gurney said at the time.

Salazar was then taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, where he was pronounced dead, he said.

OSHA last month issued two violation items, resulting in $25,350 in fines to Northern Tree Service.

OSHA cited equipment that "did not have sufficient rope wraps to properly control the descending limb" and improper head protection.
