Incident occurred November 28, 2015 in Plant City, Hillsborough County, Florida

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue was called Saturday to rescue a skydiver dangling 25 to 30 feet off the ground after his parachute became stuck in a tree in Plant City.

The skydiver was not in medical distress but was evaluated for treatment after he was brought down, the agency said. He was not transported to a hospital.

About 12:20 p.m., emergency personnel were called to Jump Florida Skydiving, at 9002 Paul Buchman Highway.

A fire engine with aerial capability was able to reach the man so firefighters could bring him down unharmed, the agency said. 

Firefighters were also able to retrieve the parachute and skydiving equipment from the tree.
