It was unclear if the man was in the tree or on the ground when the accident happened. There were some large tree pieces that came down either with him or on top of him during the work he was doing, according to police.

The victim was in serious to critical condition as he was taken to a hospital.

The homeowner told police he hired the man to do some work on the trees, according to a KSN News report. Based on photos, it appears the tree fell in an unintended direction.
