(KMOV) – A man was injured after being struck by a portion of a tree in north St. Louis county Thursday afternoon.

A 46-year-old man was standing in his backyard on the 4400 block of Strodtman and Bissell talking to neighbors when they heard a loud cracking noise, followed by a large tree limb snapping off.

The limb landed on the victim, knocking him to the ground.  He was temporarily unconscious following the impact. 

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment. His injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. 

Police say the man was not trapped under the limb when they arrived on scene.
