Climber rescued after trapped in palm fronds

A tree trimmer who became trapped upside down in palm fronds was rescued by fellow climbers on January 5, 2021, in Escondido, California.

The man, who was wearing a harness, became wedged in the tree skirt after large fronds fell on him. He was in distress and screaming for help.

The Escondido fire department was called to assist, but fellow arborists trained in tree rescue came to the man’s aid. After two hours, the rescuers were able to safely get him down from the tree. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery, according to a KGTV ABC 10News report.
