Falling Tree Kills Edinburgh Camper
A camper has died after a large tree fell on his tent as he slept in Edinburgh city centre.
Police were called to woodland next to the Water of Leith at around 3.30am. A "very large'' tree had fallen on the tent in which the man and another man were sleeping, police said.
The man died at the scene, while his 35-year-old companion suffered minor injuries.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Police in Edinburgh were called to an area of woodlands on the south bank of the Water of Leith, accessed from Miller Row, around 3.30am on Saturday August 6.
"A very large tree had fallen on a tent in which two men were sleeping and, sadly, one of the men was pronounced dead at the scene.
"A 35-year-old man also suffered minor injuries, but did not require medical treatment.''
The spokesman added: ``Officers have consulted with the appropriate partners, who are confident that the tree fell as a result of natural occurrences.
"We're currently working to trace the deceased's next of kin, and a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.''
