ELLSWORTH — A Sorrento man was killed in a logging accident last week, according to Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Dakota Dupuis.
A woman called in the early morning hours of Oct. 4, according to Dupuis, concerned that her 53-year-old husband, Marc Calcia, had not returned the night before.
After a “brief investigation,” officers learned that the man had reportedly been cutting wood on a remote lot in Ellsworth, off Margarita Way.
According to a press release from the Ellsworth Police Department, Calcia had been cutting trees for the property’s owner when he died after apparently being struck by a tree.
Dupuis, along with Deputy Dan Harlan and Ellsworth Police Officer Adam Bouchard searched the woodlot.
They found Calcia deceased “a considerable distance into the woods.”
Police are investigating but say they do not believe the incident is suspicious.
“It was believed there was a logging accident which resulted in fatal injuries,” Dupuis wrote.
Members of the Ellsworth Fire Department and a crew from Northern Light Medical Transport also responded to the scene.
