A Philadelphia man is nursing a shoulder injury after being stuck in a tree for nearly two hours.

Firefighters were called Wednesday evening to get the man down from a tree at Chew Avenue and East Washington Street.

He was stuck about 20 feet up for nearly two hours.

He and another man had been cutting limbs from the tree and one large branch fell, trapping one of the men.

Firefighters used a ladder truck while crews on a nearby roof and on the ground helped bring the man down.
