RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A Cary man has died after falling from a tree in Raleigh while demonstrating tree-climbing equipment.

Police spokesman Jim Sughrue says 26-year-old Robert William Kearns died around 7 p.m. Saturday. A witness said Kearns was about 30 feet in the air when he slipped from his harness and fell.

Sughrue says there is no indication of foul play.
