WPS worker injured cleaning up debris

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- If your yard is full of debris from the Tuesday's storm, be careful when cleaning it up.

A WPS worker is transported to the hospital after being hit by a branch. He was cutting wood on Grove Drive in the Town of Maine. Workers on the scene say he suffered only minor injuries to the chest and is expected to be okay.

As a reminder, experts say don't ever try to cut or remove downed trees or branches unless you are absolutely certain power lines are not involved.
