Brazil man Escapes Serious Injury in Tree Stand Fall

A Brazil, Indiana man found himself hanging upside down for 45 minutes Saturday after falling from a tree stand in Morgan County.

Indiana Conservation officers say 59-year-old Ray Winnett was climbing down the stand when the upper portion of it slipped, causing him to fall backwards.

Instead of falling to the ground, Winnett’s feet were trapped in the lower foot platform, leaving him dangling 25 feet off the ground.

Winnett was able to call his grandson who then called 9-1-1.

He was treated for minor back pain and released at the scene.
