HAYDEN, AL (WBRC)- A man went to UAB Hospital after falling from
a tree while coyote hunting in Blount County.
The man, in
his 40s, went hunting for coyotes around 8:30am Monday around Holt
Circle near Hayden. He told medics that he'd climbed a tree for a
better view when he fell. His family became concerned later that day
and went to the area to search for him. They found him after 3pm and
West Blount Fire Department responded to
the call and said they had to hike a mile from the road to reach the
man. They said he complained of back and leg pain. They believe he
may have fallen onto his feet from 20-25 feet.
The man was
transported to by Lifesaver and the fire department said they expect
him to recover. Check back with MyFoxAl.com for updates.
