Dying in a tree bugged

Game mode: [Online: Official Server 1808
Problem: Bug
Region: Desert starting zone

I had to climb half way up a tree and then was AFK for too long. Came back to find I had died. My body was suspended in mid air and I could not retrieve my items.

Wait for the body to decay. When it decays, it will drop a loot bag, which will fall to the ground.

body was over water so never found one
