Climber rescued from atop 100-foot spar

A climber suffered a serious injury and had to be rescued after his chain saw kicked back while he was about 100 feet up on the spar of a tree on April 2, 2021, in Spokane, Washington.

The man, a commercial tree trimmer, suffered significant injuries and was going in and out of consciousness, and was unable to get down from the tree himself. Another climber and crews using an aerial-ladder/platform truck were able to get the man out of the tree, and he was transported to a local trauma center, according to a KREM 2 report.
