Firefighters and deputies said they are not sure why, but the man climbed into a narrow hole located near the base of the tree. The hole led inside the hollow tree trunk and about four or five feet underground, said Battalion Chief Kris Concepcion of the Orange County Fire Authority.
It took firefighters about 90 minutes to get the necessary equipment and safely cut through the branches of the tree to free the man from inside, he said.
The only body parts visible outside the tree truck were the man's head and arms, he said. Part of the body was underground.
The man was checked for injuries and mental health. Link -via Arbroath
