On Thursday, April 11, the Holliston Fire Department and paramedics from Events EMS responded to a 2:20 PM report of a woman pinned under a tree in a backyard on Turner Road.

On Thursday, April 11, the Holliston Fire Department and paramedics from Events EMS responded to a 2:20 PM report of a woman pinned under a tree in a backyard on Turner Road.  Based on her injuries, the decision was made to transport the patient to a trauma center by helicopter.  An 79 year old female was transported to a landing zone secured by the Ashland Fire Department at the nearby Warren Conference Center, where care was transferred to the crew of UMass Memorial LifeFlight for transport to UMass Memorial Medical Center, Worcester.

 
According to Fire Chief Michael Cassidy, the woman appeared to have been attempting to cut the tree with an axe when it fell. A neighbor overheard the woman calling for help while walking home from the bus stop.  The Fire Department initially dispatched the Rescue and Engine 1 to the scene, however crews were able to free her from underneath the tree, which was approximately ten inches in diameter, without the use of any additional tools or equipment.
