A Montgomery County man is in critical condition after he was pinned under a falling tree limb while helping clear scattered branches from a neighbor's yard early Wednesday.
Neighbors on Shirley Road in Narberth said the man, in his 40s but whose name has not been released, is a doctor and has two young children. A spokeswoman at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where the man was taken by ambulance, confirmed he is in critical condition.
Late Wednesday morning, a tangle of tree limbs was splayed across front lawn and blocked two cars in the driveway of 13 Shirley Road, where the incident happened around 8:30 a.m. The home was blocked off with emergency tape, as branches continued to crack and fall into the yard.
