Emporia hunter falls 20 feet, airlifted afterward

Update 2:00 PM Wednesday afternoon
An Emporia hunter was airlifted to a Kansas City hospital after falling out of a tree last (TH) evening. However, that man is no longer listed at that facility.
Lyon County Deputy Jody Myers says Tom Higgins was bowhunting near the 2100 block of Road 370, or about five miles north-northeast of Miller, when he fell 20 feet from his tree stand around 6:15 pm yesterday (TU).
Higgins complained of back pain, according to Myers. He was eventually airlifted to KU Medical Center in Kansas City for his injuries. The hospital's media relations department says he is not listed as a patient.
Authorities have not indicated what led to Higgins falling from his tree stand. Deputies and emergency crews from Emporia, Miller, Allen-Admire and Reading all responded to the site.
