CROWN POINT— A helicopter was requested for a man hit by a tree in Crown Point.

At 4:15 p.m. Saturday Crown Point Fire Rescue responded to a report of a man struck by a tree at 118th Avenue and Lee Street, Capt. Tim Tulley of Crown Point Fire Rescue said.

When they arrived on scene, the man had gotten himself out from underneath the tree, but crews still had to clear brush to be able to reach the man and carry him out of the wreckage.

A helicopter was requested, but none was available, and he was taken to Franciscan Health Crown Point hospital, Tulley said.

Tulley said the man was injured but seemed to be in “fair condition” when he was transported to the hospital. The injuries were not described as life-threatening.

The middle-aged man was landscaping and cutting down trees when one caught him on the way down, Tulley said.
