A man trimming a tree in Peconic fell and suffered a back injury Thursday morning, according to the Southold Fire Department. 

Emergency responders called for a medevac and the man was airlifted to Stony Brook University Medical Center. Southold fire chief Peggy Killian said the man appeared to suffer a serious injury.

The man fell around 11:05 a.m. on Peconic Lane, Ms. Killian said. A helicopter landed a Cochran Park just a short distance away at 11:30 a.m. as the Southold Fire Department aided the victim.

Ms. Killian said she didn’t yet know what company the man — who spoke limited English — was working for at the time of the accident.
