Pierce County firefighters helped a man Wednesday afternoon who was stuck in a tree about 100 feet in the air over a golf course. Hallie McCurdy, Deputy Chief with Pierce Co. Fire and Rescue, told KOMO News the man was a parachutist who had gotten stuck in a tree at American Lake Veterans Golf Course. The man was actually not injured at all, according to McCurdy, who said her firefighters had to trim some branches before bringing in the ladder. The man was able to climb down the ladder after it was near him and is now safe. McCurdy confirmed the man was a soldier, but was unable to say where he is stationed.
