According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, a snag is “a standing dead tree“. Best Gore member @gorenesia explains:
A 35-year-old Indonesian man from Lete Wungana village of West Sumba Regency of East Nusa Tenggara was found dead, impaled on a tree snag at his ladang. (NOTE: There’s no English equivalent word for ladang)
According to a witness, prior to the body discovery; the victim was last seen climbing a mango tree without safety equipment to harvest its plentiful fruits. A few hours later, the witness shouted at the victim from afar asking him to come down and go home together to perform Dhuhr noon prayer; But no response could be heard.
Thanks a lot for the pics and the backstory, @gorenesia:
