Man dies after fall from hunting stand

By Erica Johnston

A 44-year-old Maryland man was fatally injured Monday when he apparently fell from an elevated stand while hunting, the Maryland Natural Resources Police said.

They said the death of Dennis Arthur Siler, of Port Deposit, which occurred in the Elkton, Md. area, was the second fatal tree-stand hunting accident since the Sept. 15 start of bow season for deer.

The Natural Resources Police said Siler had been hunting from a portable climbing stand 30 feet high.

AMBULANCE CHASING on fatal accident stories. Now I've seen everything. Some lawyers are the worst PR people on the planet.

I'm guessing he was not wearing a climbing harness? Sad.
