DUBOIS — Indiana conservation officers are investigating a tree stand accident that injured a Dubois man early Sunday afternoon.
Timothy Emmons, 57, of rural Dubois, was in the process of taking down a ladder stand when the accident occurred at 12:07 p.m., according to conservation officers.
Authorities said the ladder stand buckled, throwing Emmons about 20 feet to the ground.
Emmons’ girlfriend, who was present at the scene, went to a nearby home to call 911.
First responders with the Dubois Volunteer Fire Department responded, located Emmons and transported him out of the woods to a waiting ambulance that took him to Memorial Hospital in Jasper for treatment of back injuries, according to conservation officers.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services also assisted.
