Hunter Injured In Fall From Treestand

At approximately 8:30am on Sunday morning (12/23/2018) a 25 year old Shelby Township man called 911 to report that he had fallen from his tree stand while deer hunting. The man stated that he believed he had broken his leg as a result of the fall and that he was incapacitated on the ground at the bottom of the tree. The man was able to provide Chesterfield 911 Dispatchers with his location via GPS on his cell phone.

Dispatchers guided Chesterfield Police and Fire units to the man’s location, where he was ultimately located on State Hunting land south of 25 Mile Road and west of I-94. Police, Fire and Medstar ambulance personnel stabilized the man and conveyed him out of the woods and to a waiting ambulance.

The man was conveyed to McLaren Macomb Hospital where he is currently in surgery with apparent non-life threatening injuries.
