Detroit Firefighters Rescue Man Trapped Under Tree

Article and photos by Steve Redick

Detroit firefighters responded recently to a report of a victim pinned under a fallen tree.

The weather was not a factor in the incident–there was light wind and no storms. The victim apparently was riding his bike down the street when a branch fell, pinning him on his bike.

Crews performed some light extrication and readied the victim for transport by EMS. The man appeared in pretty decent shape considering the circumstances.
