Florida Teenager Rescued From Tree After Spending Three Hours Stuck Between Branches

A Florida teenager is back on solid ground after a dramatic rescue from a tree on Monday.

The 15-year-old boy was playing with his brother in the oak tree and fell and got stuck after walking along one of the branches, according to MyFOXTampaBay.

He was only 10 feet off the ground but spent about three hours wedged between the oak's branches.

Firefighters, paramedics and a tree service used hand tools, chisels and ropes to wrench free the teen, MyFOXTampaBay reported.

The boy eventually was extricated and was said to be shaken but doing fine. His family declined to release his name.
