A man is recovering after falling from a tree he was cutting in Lincoln County over the weekend.
A property owner on Seven Island Lake Road in Harrison called 911 on Saturday morning, after the man he had hired to cut trees had fallen approximately 25 feet to the ground.
The 52 year old Birnamwood man was transported Ministry Saint Mary’s Hospital and eventually to Marshfield by ambulance. As of last night the man was listed in fair condition. Responders initially intended to airlift the man by medical helicopter, but were not able to do so due to the weather.
According to the incident report, the man was wearing a safety harness at the time of the accident. Officials believe it slipped over and off the top of the tree stump.
