CPD says Jona Daniel was cut by a chainsaw on the side and back of his head and on his wrist while holding a ladder for a neighbor.

Police say emergency personnel were able to quickly reach Daniel, bandage his wounds and transport him to a local hospital.

Witnesses on-scene said that the tree limb could have easily critically injured both men. No charges have been filed in this incident as it has been considered accidental.
