Worker trapped on a ladder while removing a limb

Phoenix, AZ – An unidentified worker was trapped after the ladder he was standing on became tangled up with a rope.

According to Michelle, the homeowner, she hired someone to trim up her pine trees around her house. The worker was working on the last tree of the day when he got tied up.

“He went to cut down the branch and it swung around and hit the bottom of his ladder, so it just got him all twisted up,” Michelle said.

The man was able to hold on until Phoenix firefighters arrived and got him safely down.

“Very lucky. He’s very, very lucky. He’s doing good though. He’s walking around and he was in the shade waiting for them so he’s going to be OK,” Michelle said.
