LAPORTE – A worker cleaning the bush from a servants near LaPorte was pierced by a branch Wednesday.

The man was taken to a hospital by a Medic One helicopter about 400 meters from a field where the accident occurred late in the morning in the 3900 block of North 100 West.

LaPorte County Deputy Police Chief Ron Heeg said the branch, about 1 foot long and 1 inch in diameter, entered the man’s leg and midsection.

Heeg said the victim looked alert and was talking when rescuers arrived.

Heeg said preliminary investigation shows the man was operating a brush cutter when he was somehow pierced by the branch.

“It’s just a very strange and unfortunate accident,” Heeg said.

The man was taken out of the camp in an off-road vehicle and taken to a helicopter that was called to the scene.

Andrew McGuire, director of La Porte County Emergency Medical Service, said the man was too far from the road in a fairly wooded area to be reached by ambulance.

He said the victim was taken to a trauma center for treatment.
