Man rescued from tree after branch knocks him unconscious

A man was injured while trimming branches off a tree when a limb came down and hit him. The branch knocked him unconscious and injured his leg. Authorities struggled to get the man down because he was about 50 feet up in a tree, and knocked out. They had to wait for a firetruck with a ladder to rescue him. He was in the tree for about an hour before being extracted. He was transported to Sacred Heart, awake.

It is unclear if the man was a tree care professional or civilian.
