LANSING, MI (CBS DETROIT)– An unidentified Michigan man was impaled by a tree stump at Michigan State University. He ended up being stranded for 14 hours before being rescued by a group of runners at about 8 a.m the next morning.

The unidentified victim climbed a tree, fell from it, and landed on a 2-inch wide stump at about 6 p.m. on Friday.

The tree stump pierced through the man’s shoulder; exposing a bone.

His reasoning for climbing the tree was because he was “enjoying nature”.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital and he is now being treated.
