WYOMING, Mich. (AP) - A man trying to retrieve a drone from a tree in the Grand Rapids area needed his own rescue.

WZZM-TV (https://on.wzzm.com/2anxDZ0 ) reports that the man, wearing spikes, climbed the tree Saturday but got stuck. Firefighters in Wyoming, a Grand Rapids suburb, couldn’t immediately save him. A fire truck got stuck in soft ground and had to be pulled out.

The man finally was removed from the tree with equipment from a tree service.

A neighbor, Brad Oliver, says the rescue effort began when the man’s wife hadn’t heard from him for hours.
