A Jacksonville man was in surgery Thursday afternoon after falling about 30 feet from atop his tree stand in Pelham Range on Thursday morning, according to the man’s wife.

Mandy White said her husband, Chris White, 40, broke an ankle, both legs and crushed a heel in the fall.

White said her husband was wearing a safety harness and strap, and was trying to attach that strap to the stand at around 5:30 a.m. when something dropped out from underneath him and he fell.
