Authorities say a hunter was killed and son injured when they plunged from a tree stand in a wooded area northeast of Atlanta.
Forsyth County Fire Chief Jason Shivers says rescuers battled darkness as they tried to reach the two, and located the father and son by tracking a cell phone signal off Old Atlanta Road in the Suwanee area Monday evening.
Rescuers say they started CPR on 44-year-old Jeffery Lane McBryant of Cumming, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Shivers said that his teenage son, whose name wasn’t released, was taken to Northside Hospital-Forsyth with non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators estimate the two fell between 15 and 20 feet to the ground.
