A 64 year old Celina man died Saturday after he was struck by a fallen tree. According to the Mercer County Sheriff's Office, the incident occurred just after 10 am in the area of Old Town Road and Harris Road. The report indicates Nicholas Schroer was struck by a fallen tree which came down as a tree was being pulled down with a tractor, attached to a chain, as the tree was already broke and falling. The witness told the police the tree fell the rest of the way down and landed on another tree which fell on Schroer. After being taken from the scene by squad, Nicholas Schroer was pronounced dead a short time later at Joint Township District Memorial Hospital in St Marys.
