Firefighters rescue man who climbed tree to save a cat

TULSA, OK – If there’s one lesson to be learned in this story, it’s to let the professionals do their job.  We all know firefighters love rescuing cats and kittens from trees, so there’s no need for us, humans, to go get stuck in places we don’t belong.

That’s what happened last week in Tulsa when a homeowner worried for his cat in the tree climbed it and couldn’t get down.

“Around 3:45 pm, Captain Alan Hancock and his Engine 27 A Platoon crew responded to a rescue near S. 94th E. Avenue and E. 27th Street. Apparently, a cat climbed high up into a tree,” the Tulsa Fire Department said. “Its owner was so concerned for the feline that he climbed up to attempt a rescue. Unfortunately, they both found themselves in a dangerous predicament high above the ground, unable to get down safely.”

When Captain Hancock and crew arrived and accessed the scene, they requested that Captain Jacob Inbody and the Ladder 27 crew respond to utilize their aerial device.
