Man Pinned By Tree Branch Credits Son, 4, For Help

Posted: Updated:

BEAR LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A man who was pinned under a large tree branch in the northwestern Lower Peninsula is crediting his 4-year-old son's quick efforts for helping to get him free.

Grant Groenwald says that he was cutting wood Friday near his home in Manistee County's Bear Lake Township when a branch rolled on him. His son Quillan says he was able to drag a chain saw over to his dad.

Apparently Groenwald used the chain saw to cut the branch while he was still pinned underneath and Quillan helped him back to a truck.

Groenwald has a broken ankle, which is expected to require surgery.

When he was trapped, Groenwald says his son didn't think he could help. Groenwald says he told his son: "You're my only savior."
