A man was rushed to the hospital after falling from a ladder while doing yard work Friday morning.

The Grand Junction Fire Department was called out to a home on 28 and 1/4 around 11 a.m. Friday morning.

Rescue crews on scene told 11 News a man was on a ladder trimming a tree.

They say his ladder was tied to a branch and when he tried to untie it one of the legs on the ladder buckled.

The ladder and the man fell, and on the way down, both hit a power line.

The man's name and condition have not been released.
