BREMEN, Ind. (AP) — A mother says her teenage son is recovering after being knocked unconscious when he fell from a tree in a northern Indiana town park.

Caralisa Staiger says she thinks a woman’s quick call to 911 after seeing her son fall helped save his life. She says 13-year-old Joshua Staiger wasn’t able to breath after falling from a high branch Thursday at Bremen’s Shady Side Park.

Staiger tells WNDU-TV she is grateful for many prayers of support for her son after the accident in the town about 15 miles south of South Bend.

Joshua has been treated in the pediatric intensive care unit of a South Bend hospital. He suffered a concussion and some head bleeding but no broken bones.
