A construction worker has been killed on a golf course owned by pop star Justin Timberlake after a 100-foot tree fell on top of him.
Cruz Ayala Delgado died at the Big Creek Golf Club in Timberlake's hometown of Millington, Tennessee on Saturday, police have confirmed.
A spokesperson for the Shelby County Sheriff's Office says the accident occurred at approximately 8:30 a.m., when the man was trying to remove the tree from the course.
Local fire department officials reportedly took two hours to remove Delgado's body from the scene after Big Creek employees reportedly tried to lift the tree but were unsuccessful.
Shelby County Fire Dept. told WREG in Memphis: "We think at this point that the ground can be so unstable. It's very wet and very muddy that the bottom of the tree just gave way."
Timberlake and his parents purchased the course, where the singer learned to play the sport, in 2007 for £544,220 to save it from residential development and have reportedly spent £10.9 million on renovations
