Plymouth man falls 20 feet while hunting

August 16, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a tree stand accident that occurred at 10099 7th Rd near Plymouth Indiana Wednesday.
According to Officer Owens, a Stephen E. Guzak, 45 years old, was attempting to hang his tree stand to hunt from in the upcoming deer season and as he did he fell from the tree approximately 20 feet to the ground. Guzak was not using any protective gear such as a climbing harness or safety line. Guzak suffered a broken hip, dislocated shoulder, possible broken ribs and arm. Guzak was transported by helicopter to Memorial Hospital in South Bend Indiana. He was in stable condition at the time of this report. Other units on the scene were Marshall County Sheriff’s Department, Plymouth EMS and Medflight.
Indiana Conservation Officers urge anyone setting up a tree stand to use the proper safety gear and to have help. Indiana Conservation Officers also urge sportsmen and women to leave a hunting plan with a responsible person since Guzak was lucky as he was out by himself and his cell phone worked well enough to call 911.
