A tree trimmer found himself trapped when a limb he was cutting fell on top of him, pinning him into the tree’s branches, Fayette County dispatchers said Friday afternoon.

A 20-year-old man was trapped for at least 30 minutes, a dispatcher said.

Oak Hill Fire Department led the rescue. Fayetteville, Nuttall and Ansted Fire Departments were also on-scene with a high-rescue team, a wrecker service, and a tree climbing team.
