A 42-year-old Newfane man died while hunting on Sunday in the town of Alabama.

Charles Sossong, of Lockport-Olcott Road, Newfane, wasn't wearing a safety restraint while in a tree stand that was 35 feet off the ground, according to investigators. Sossong was pronounced dead at 3:11 p.m. by County Coroner Christine Flanagan. His body was first found by a friend at the base of the tree.

An investigation revealed the tree stand was still affixed to the tree.
