A 61-year-old Detroit Lakes man sustained non-life threatening injuries after he fell off a tree stand Monday.

David Schiller was in the woods west of County Highway 32 and north of West Cotton Lake Road when he fell about 20 to 25 feet from the tree stand, according to the Becker County Sheriff's Office.


He was unable to move for several hours or make contact with anyone. Schiller finally contacted his wife when he crawled to his ATV where he kept his cell phone.
