AL: Hunter Injured In 30-Foot Fall From Tree Stand

Hunter Injured In 30-Foot Fall From Tree Stand

January 26, 2011

A hunter was injured after falling about 30 feet from a tree stand this morning in Escambia County, Alabama.

John Davis, 33, of Atmore, was transported by LifeFlight to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola following the accident just after 7 a.m. in the Pineview community north of Flomaton.

According to Flomaton Fire Chief Steve Stanton, Davis fell about 30 feet onto a log after experiencing a severe low blood sugar problem. Davis managed to call his father, who was hunting nearby, for help before falling, but the father was unable to get Davis out of the tree before his condition worsened.

Davis suffered a broken ankle as a result of the fall.

Davisí tree stand was several hundred feet in the woods, with firefighters forced to carry him about 100 yards to a clearing that was accessible only with a pickup truck.
