BUTLER, Ind. (AP) - Rescue workers used ropes, pulleys and jacks to move a fallen limp that pinned a northeastern Indiana man several feet off the ground in a tree.
Butler Fire Chief Jeff Shultz says then man was cutting the limb when it came down on him Sunday evening in a rural area of DeKalb County.
Shultz tells The Star of Auburn that emergency crews needed about 45 minutes to free the man from the tree.
The man was flown to a Fort Wayne hospital, although Shultz said he didn't know the extent of his injuries. He says the man had movement in his feet after he was freed.

Freezing rain across much of central and northern Indiana coated roads with ice overnight, contributing to many crashes.
