Man climbs tree to rescue cat, fire crew rescues both


A man tried to rescue cat that climbed tree, and then fire crews in Tulsa, Okla., had to rescue both.

“Its owner was so concerned for the feline that he climbed up to attempt a rescue,” the Tulsa Fire Department noted in a post on Facebook. “Unfortunately, they both found themselves in a dangerous predicament high above the ground, unable to get down safely.”

Capt. Alan Hancock and his Engine 27 A Platoon responded to the scene, according to the post.

After assessing the situation, they requested Capt. Jack Inbody and the Ladder 27 crew to use their aerial device.

“Acting FEO Brett Allen positioned the aerial so Firefighter James Brooks could ascend and perform a safe rescue,” the post read.
