COLQUITT CO., GA (WALB) - A Moultrie man was knocked off a ladder and killed over the weekend.

Sixty-three-year-old Claude Simpson, Junior was trimming a tree at a home on Funston-Sigsbee Road when the limb snapped and knocked him off the ladder.

Simpson hit his head on the side of the truck as he fell.

A man holding the ladder, Robert Adkins, was cut on the face.
