A man who was minding his own business, just drinking in a tree like we all do sometimes, met his fate in a horrible freak accident when he fell from said tree and was impaled on a fence. Good reason not to climb trees.

The man, identified as 30-year-old Edwin Ochoa, was found in the East Hollywood neighborhood of L.A. close to 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday after he'd fallen twenty feet from the tree to his death. Los Angeles police officers on the scene explained that they found over a dozen beer bottles at the base of the tree.

The AP reports that residents told cops that the man was known as a heavy drinker. Even better reason not to climb trees. Sad death.
