"Man Stuck in Tree"

It must have been a slow day for fires.

From WOAI:

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?

Maybe we're really living in Pleasantville... where the firefighters don't fight fires... they only tend to cats and apparently the elderly that get caught in trees. ;)

I'm sort of amazed that an 83 year old man could even attempt this task.

Yeah, I can only hope I'm that spry at that age.
