Man died after being hit by tree when looking for missing hen

A pensioner died after being hit and trapped by a fallen conifer tree while trying to find a missing hen during a storm, an inquest heard this afternoon.

A conclusion of accidental death was recorded at Caernarfon on Robert Thomas, 77, who lived in nearby Caeathro,

He died last February when a 100mph storm hit the area.

His widow Jean said they had been at home watching TV when Mr Thomas decided it was time to put their hens back in a hut. He couldn’t find one of them and she went outside to give him a hand.

Mrs Thomas heard a loud bang and saw her husband – a retired maintenance fitter at a local factory – trapped under the tree.

She was unable to call an ambulance from her house because the phone line had been brought down in the storm.

Mrs Thomas alerted neighbours by shouting for help.

An ambulance was then called and Mr Thomas was taken to hospital at Bangor before being transferred 100 miles to a specialist unit at Stoke-on-Trent where he died the next day.
