Fall from Scottish town's Christmas tree kills man, officials say

A man fell to his death Friday morning while trying to climb a Scottish town’s 20-foot tall Christmas tree, authorities said.

The man, who was in his 50s but otherwise not identified, was discovered injured outside the Kirkcaldy Town House in Kirkcaldy by patrons who were leaving Kitty’s nightclub, located near the tree, The Courier reported.

Bystanders tried to render aid to the man, but he was reportedly unresponsive.

First responders transported the man to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy, but he later died, the BBC reported. Police cordoned off the area around the tree and are investigating.

"The death is being treated as non-suspicious and inquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances. A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal,” a police spokesperson said.
