Hiker killed when massive redwood falls on top of him in California park

Subhradeep Dutta, 28, of Edina, Minnesota, died while walking on a marked dirt trail with two other people in the Muir Woods National Monument north of San Francisco, on Christmas Eve. Dutta was pinned by the trunk of the 200-foot-tall tree and died at the scene. The trunk measured more than 4 feet in diameter. A woman hiking with the victim also was hurt when she was struck by falling debris.

Did it make a sound and it had to kill the witness?... or it didn't make a sound and the hiker was unaware.
