Trimmer Rescued from Tree
By Joe Fasbinder Brentwood News Correspondent | February 04, 2013
It took 32 Los Angeles firefighters to rescue a tree trimmer from a eucalyptus tree, after he got stuck in a tree outside a Brentwood home. The identity of the man was not released, though he was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. He was also said to be toting a half-full bottle of tequila when he was lowered to the ground after a delicate operation that was complicated by the fact that the tree was on a hillside – making it hard for firefighters to use ladders get to the man. The tree trimmer apparently became entangled in a safety harness while working in the tree.
