Forty-six-year old John Penner was killed on Sunday, May 19th by a falling tree at a farm in Yalbac Village near the Spanish Lookout Area. The accident victim was along with his friend Henry Dueck, working to cut a tree down. The tree hit John Penner on his left shoulder and as a result he fell to the ground lying motionless. The body of Penner was transported to the San Ignacio Morgue where the attending doctor declared him dead on arrival. A post mortem conducted on John Penner at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital on Monday has since revealed that he died as a result of traumatic shock due to severe body injury.
