Climber injured after tree fails

A climber suffered serious injuries on November 2, 2020, in Mystic, Connecticut, after falling 50 feet when the tree he was cutting failed.

The victim, a 25-year-old man who was a contractor, was in the process of limbing and topping the tree for removal. The man had just cut the top off the tree when the tree snapped 30 feet below him. He landed on a small shed-type structure and was trapped there under the toppled tree.

Firefighters worked to pull the tree off the climber and extract him from the shed. The man was flown by Life Star to Hartford Hospital in serious condition, according to The Day and WTNH reports.
