A man is dead after a log fell on his head at a Chico lumber yard.
The Butte County Coroner's Office identified the man as Deacon Murphy, 42, of Los Molinos.
Around 1:30 on Wednesday afternoon at "Sierra Log Homes" on Morrow Lane, the worker – Murphy, who was not an employee of the business – was working on a pulley when a log fell from the top part of the truck that was carrying the lumber.
Sgt. Rob Merrifield of the Chico Police Dept. said Murphy looked to be "in very serious condition."
He was rushed to Enloe Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition, and later died.
