BRENTWOOD ( — Rescue crews found a tree trimmer in a precarious situation in Brentwood on Monday night.

Sky2’s Stu Mundel reported that the worker slipped out of a safety harness and got stuck in a large Eucalyptus tree behind a home on the 11000 block of West Kearsarge Street around 5:40 p.m.

The Los Angeles City Fire Department was called to the area by the man’s co-workers.

Firefighters used 35-foot ladders, ropes and harnesses to bring the man to safety around 7:30 p.m.

The rescue took nearly two hours because of the challenges in securing a ladder on the steep hillside.

Officials told KCAL9 that they found a tequila bottle at the scene.

The victim was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.
