OCONOMOWAC LAKE- Police say a gardener was working near a fence line on Petit Road in Oconomowoc Lake when two branches snapped.

It all happened around 1 p.m. Tuesday.

When help arrived they found the woman conscious and alert lying with the branches beside her.

There were also snapped power lines arching causing a small fire with visible flames.

WE Energies was able to come in and cut the power to the lines so the woman could be safely removed.

That woman was life flighted to Froedtert Hospital; police didn't release her condition or identity.

It's still unclear how those limbs snapped.
