(DECATUR) - Authorities say a northeastern Indiana man paralyzed in a weekend fall from a deer stand has died after being removed from life support at his own request.

32-year-old Timothy E. Bowers of Decatur died Sunday evening at a Fort Wayne hospital where he was taken after suffering Saturday's paralyzing injury.

The state Department of Natural Resources says in a release that Bowers was deer hunting Saturday afternoon when he fell 16 feet from a tree where he had been scouting for deer in an elevated stand.

The Journal Gazette reports Bowers suffered a neck injury and paralysis in that fall and was taken to a Lutheran Hospital in serious condition.

The release says Bowers asked Sunday to be removed from life support and died about 7 p.m.
