Man Falls From Tree Stand

A Sarpy County man found injured after falling from a tree stand.

Initial reports say the man believed to be about 64 years old may have suffered broken ribs and injured collar bone. He was taken by medical helicopter to an Omaha hospital.

Papillion fire reports the man had a cell phone and called his daughter who in turn contacted 911. However rescuers didn't know the exact location of the tree stand so they had to search the field southwest of 96th and Cornhusker.

He had gone to bow hunt at about 6am.
