Hunter Falls From Tree Stand, Calls For Help

Last updated on Friday, November 9, 2007

(ROCKVILLE) - An Indiana hunter is hospitalized after falling from a hunting tree stand.

35-year-old Shane Moncrief was found by using the global positioning satellite information from his cell phone. He couldn't move because of injuries to his lower body and told dispatchers he was unconscious for almost an hour after the fall.

Because of his remote location near Rockville, he could not provide dispatchers with directions.
