The accident took place in the local part of Srní, in very inaccessible terrain. After the initial treatment, the rescuers transported the men to a better accessible place. “The injured person was transported by professional firefighters from Vsetín and volunteer firefighters from Halenkov, who use an ATV,” said Roman Žemlička, a spokesman for the regional fire brigade.
There were two men in the forest at the time of the accident, who were cutting down a mature tree. Contrary to the original assumptions, however, it turned out differently than where they intended. This happened to a fatal older man who, unlike his acquaintance, did not have time to jump down the falling tree.
