CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - The Chicago Fire Department rescued a tree trimmer who was trapped with a broken leg.
Firefighters found the man hanging upside down from a tree about 75 feet from the ground at 5306 S. Union in the Fuller Park neighborhood on Sunday.
Firefighters said the man was trying to lower a branch when it got caught in his lines and lifted him up like a pulley.
He had broken his leg.
It took about 30 minutes to untangle him from his lines and safely remove him from the tree. He was then taken to the hospital.
