Last updated on Friday, November 18, 2011

(LINCOLN CO. KY.) - A Kentucky man is fighting for his life after a bizarre hunting accident. Kinney Noe was critically injured while hunting in Lincoln County on Sunday.

A safety strap on his tree stand broke, and he fell to the ground.

Noe landed on his feet, but a tree limb went through most of his body, breaking his ribs and injuring his internal organs. He was able to call his family on his cell phone for help.

Noe is now in a Lexington hospital in critical condition.
