San Jose CA Firefighters Rescue Man From Tree

A man spent several hours Monday morning stuck in a tree 30 feet over a creek in San Jose before fire crews could rescue him, reports SF Gate.

The man, whose name was not released, was apparently running away from other people when he decided to climb off a bridge.

The man clambered off the road and onto a tree limb about six feet below.

Crews extended a fire ladder over the tree and lowered a firefighter with a system of ropes and pulleys.
