An unidentified 15-year-old Bradenville boy suffered ankle injuries early Saturday after he apparently fell from a tree stand while hunting in Derry Township, reported the Blairsville Volunteer Fire Department.

The company responded to the incident at 6:59 a.m. near Westinghouse Road.

Crews entered the wooded area with four-wheel drive vehicles to help the ambulance crew remove the boy from the woods. The rescue effort took one hour, according to a release issued by the fire department.

Eastern Derry Township Volunteer Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
