A paraglider attempting a jump from a mountain in northern Israel had to call police for help after winding up ensnared in a tree shortly after jumping Sunday.
The pilot attempted to jump off a cliff on Mount Arbel, next to the Sea of Galilee, and was immediately snagged by the limbs of an overhanging tree. Dangling over the void, the trapped jumper called the cops.
The Israel Police tweeted that the parachutist asked for help because he was stuck in a tree. The man said he was in good condition, but unable to dislodge himself.
Police dispatched emergency services to rescue the man, including a helicopter.
Volunteer medics at the scene told Maariv that the helicopter successfully rescued the man after an hour of work. He was treated on location and taken to a local hospital for treatment.
