A mushroom hunter from Cedar Rapids, Iowa who suffered multiple broken ribs and four shattered vertebra when a falling hickory tree pinned him to the ground says he’ll head to the woods in search of morels again, but not when the wind is blowing. “Lying under that tree, I had time to do some praying and soul searching,” said Denis Berns, 51. “I am going to go to church and do some other different things.” Cedar Rapids Gazette.
