WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - West Fargo police say a 41-year-old Horace man was hospitalized with non-life threating injuries after he was catapulted out of a boom truck bucket.

When Morrissette had the log picked up with boom, which was about 20 feet in the air, the rope snapped and catapulted him to the ground.
