Climber injured in struck-by

A 42-year-old worker from Hackensack, New Jersey, was injured October 6, 2022, in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, when a branch fell and broke his leg while he was suspended in a tree. He was stranded on an unsteady branch 20 to 30 feet in the air. The first firefighters on the scene were unable to reach him. But Steven Alvarez, an off-duty firefighter on his way to teach rope rescue for hostage negotiations, responded and was able to secure a harness to the victim and rescue him, according to a report.
