A Solon Township man suffered severe injuries when he fell out of a tree last month.

According to Solon Township Fire Chief Jeff Drake, the call came in at 9:55 a.m., December 14. He said that Steve Shears, 43, fell about 15 feet from a tree he was trimming at 3291 Wiersma, and was sent to Butterworth Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

According to Steve’s sister, Brandie, he was helping his father take down a tree for someone when the accident occurred. She said he was unconscious for about 20 minutes, and suffered some memory loss. He also is receiving some therapy for help with walking, speech, and some special therapy for his eyesight on his left side. He spent several days at Mary Free Bed after leaving Butterworth, and is now home with his family.

According to Brandie, Steve works in construction but he won’t be able to work for several months. If anyone would like to help financially, Sue’s Country Kitchen, located at 12 N. First Street, is taking donations for him.
