On the morning of Saturday, July 13, Cindy Eiseler and three of her friends were running along the Lansing River Trail by Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan, when they heard a voice calling for help from the woods nearby.
We heard a mans voice crying out I need help, I need help! Eiseler told Runners World. It stopped us dead in our tracks not knowing exactly where the mans voice was coming from.
The group did not want to venture into the woods alone, so they called 911 and assured the man that help was on the way. While waiting, another group of runners came by. Eiseler and her friends explained the situation, and two male runners in the group went in to check out what was going on.
They discovered that a man, a 37-year-old whose name was not released, had fallen from a tree onto a splintered tree trunk the night before, impaling his shoulder and trapping him to the ground. He remained there for 14 hours.
The Michigan State University Police Department confirmed the incident in a statement to Runners World, but could not comment on why the man was in the tree.

The "Brave Sir Robin" generation.
They were girls. Smart decision
They’re girls and probably should be careful. Wish girls would be more like girls these days anyway.
Leave the heroics to the guys. World would work better.
“Don’t tax me, don’t tax thee. Tax that fellow...um, impaled on that tree.”
If they had gone into the woods and they were killed, we would be calling them fools for not knowing how dangerous it could be.
Seems to me they did the right thing.
Heck, at least they did SOMETHING!
I agree with them.
Because that’s when the party moves from the trees to the desert sands of Las Vegas...
Yeah! I second the motion!
A group of women afraid to go a few feet into the woods? Guy falls out of tree at night and impaled for 14 hours? What are they smoking up there?
I saw a hot looking tree once. It gave me a woody!
Curious what a 73 YO man was doing in a tree at night.
Anyone seen Bob Mueller?
Considering your stated hypothesis is completely in error, you should read more carefully.
Splintered tree stumps must be stopped!!! Going around impaling people and sh*t!!!
Toxic masculinity strikes again.

When stumps are outlawed only outlaws will have stumps. We need a Stump Amendment.
