Bend Man Dies When Tree Falls


A Bend man was killed in what is described as a freak accident in Glide, Oregon. David Sheldon, 57, died Tuesday when a large tree fell on the van he was sleeping in. David Sheldon loved nature and would sometimes sleep in the woods after doing marketing work at his job in Roseburg. Dwes Hutson with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office: "This was a freak accident,  We're in timber county so its not uncommon to have wind storm that bring trees down and so forth, but to happen to come down across a van where someone is sleeping out in a remote area; just a freak accident." For 18 years, Sheldon did marketing work for a Roseburg company. His boss Tim Bogan says it wasn't unusual for him to sleep in his van: “Dave was a lover of the outdoors. If you see where he passed away, it’s a beautiful setting; it’s right on the north Umpqua River.” In Bend, Sheldon was active in community theater and the Cascade Festival of Music
