GUTTENBERG (KWWL) -

The Clayton County Sheriff's Office says a rural Guttenberg man died Thursday after he was knocked off a ladder by a tree limb.

Clayton County Chief Deputy Ryan Johnson says the sheriff's office received a report of an unresponsive man at a home on Mississippi Road at around 10:30 a.m. on October 6.

When deputies arrived, they found John Gradoville, 61, laying on the ground unconscious.

Johnson says Gradoville was trimming a tree behind his house when he was knocked off the ladder by a limb.  A friend found him and called 9-1-1.

Johnson says no foul play is expected, but the death continues to be investigated.
