NAPOLEON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A southern Michigan teen has been injured after a tree being cut by his father struck him in the head.

MLive.com reports (http://bit.ly/29hQzXr ) that the 17-year-old boy was hit by the 10-inch diameter tree about 2:40 p.m. Sunday in Jackson County’s Napoleon Township as it deflected off another tree.

He was airlifted to a hospital.

Township police Sgt. Duane Pittman says the teen suffered from “real trauma” and “quite a bit of bleeding.”

Pittman says the teen was conscious and breathing.
