Neighbors said the 83 year-old man had been climbing in his trees to trim them all week. They said they were concerned that something could happen to him.
Those neighbors' suspicion[s] unfortunately came true. They were forced to call for help on Saturday afternoon after a couple people noticed him dangling from a tree in his backyard.
Six fire crews responded to help get the elderly man down man [sic].
Wouldn't one ladder truck have been quite enough?
