A male victim is recovering after falling approximately 30 feet from a tree in which he had been cutting on Friday evening in Patterson.
Patterson Fire Chief Scott Domingue tells KQKI News that the Patterson Volunteer Fire Department, St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office and Acadian Ambulance were dispatched to a residence located in the 500 block of Joey Street around 8:30 p.m.
Acadian Air Med and a ground unit were dispatched to the scene. However, Air Med was canceled just prior to landing and the unidentified victim refused medical treatment at the scene. His injuries appeared to be limited to an arm.
