Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A tree trimmer was critically injured after a large tree branch fell on him Saturday afternoon knocking him unconscious and leaving him hanging in a large tree at about 3 p.m. in the 2700-block of Princeton Avenue in Evanston.

Fire officials said he was trapped more than 20 feet in the air. He was transported to an Evanston hospital in critical condition.
