(PORTER CO.) - Tree stand safety is back in the spotlight after another hunter was badly hurt. Officials say it was the ninth tree stand accident in Indiana this year.

Ronald Blasko was hunting in the Hebron area, when he fell more than 14 feet. He wasn't wearing a safety harness.

Officials say Blasko was wanting to change locations of his tree stand from one area to another when he fell.

Blasko started to remove the top strap of the stand, attached to the tree, and fell more than 14 feet from the tree stand suffering a leg and shoulder injury due to the fall.

Indiana Conservation Officers want to remind deer hunters, that wearing your safety harness is crucial, when hunting from elevated tree stands.
