Charles City man recovering from 40-foot fall from tree

An Iowa tree service owner is recovering after falling about 40 feet from a tree.

Kevin Hardy was harnessed and wearing a helmet when he fell out of a tree in Charles City on Friday.  He was air-lifted to the St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, for treatment for multiple injuries.  Hardy owns Cutting Edge Tree Services in Mason City.
 
Hardy's wife says he will be in the hospital until at least Friday.  He broke his pelvis, right clavicle, left scapula and 11 ribs.
 
She says his doctors say the injuries are fixable and they're ``amazed'' he didn't break more bones.  She says he has no internal bleeding or brain trauma and is in relatively good spirits.
