CANTON, Ohio — Firefighters used a ladder from an aerial truck on Thursday morning to rescue a man who was trapped in a pine tree behind a Canton home.

Mark Bagnoli, 59, was a trimming a tree for his parents on 38th Street NW when he was seriously injured and became stuck on a partial limb about 40 feet off the ground.

Captain Dan Reed, part of Technical Rescue Operations Team, said Bagnoli was hurt while trying to cut down a large chunk of the tree. "All the tree limbs were cut off and he was trying to take the top off, probably approximately a 30 foot section of the tree base, and it came down and struck him," Reed said.
