Mysuru, Feb 07, 2023: A 60-year-old man was found dead, sitting atop a 50-feet-high coconut tree in Vijayashree Layout, Mylasandra, off Mysuru Road in Karnataka on Monday. The man reportedly shinned up a coconut palm to pluck the fruit and died after suffering a heart attack while he was sitting on the tree.

Police, along with fire and emergency services reached the spot and demounted the body from the tree, and sent it for autopsy at a private hospital.

The deceased has been identified as Narayanappa, a resident of Mylasandra, according to local media reports.

Doctors later confirmed he died following a heart attack.

A gunny bag, a rope bundle and a sickle were found at the bottom of the tree indicating that the deceased regularly climbed coconut palms.
