When asked how long he had been under the branch, the man replied, “Don’t just stand there! Help me up! This branch is heavy!”

Branches from street trees along Winchester Boulevard occasionally fall. However, fallen branches typically are found just after a stormy or windy night. The weather on this Sunday had been calm.

When asked about the weather conditions when he was struck, the fallen man replied, “Are you kidding me? There’s this huge branch pinning me down, and you want to talk about the weather? Can’t you call someone?”

Emergency crews arrived on the scene after contacted by a Kazoo patron who thought he saw a cat stuck higher up in the tree.
