Man Pinned By Tree
A Monroe County man has life threatening injuries after a tree fell on him last night. Just before 6:30 last night, 59 year old Gary Everts, of rural Camp Douglas, was cutting down a tree when it fell and twisted. The tree fell in the same direction Everts had run to get away. The tree hit him in the middle of the back and pinned him. Everts was transported to Tomah Memorial hospital and later transferred to Gundersen Lutheran hospital by Med Link Air with life threatening injuries. The accident remains under investigation by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department.
