Firefighters Rescue Paraglider from Santa Barbara Tree

Santa Barbara firefighters rescued a paraglider who got caught in a 35-foot palm tree.

Login Walters, of Carpinteria, told KEYT that his aerial voyage was fine until a shift in the wind sent him into a palm tree.

Rescue workers used an 80-foot ladder extension to reach Walters.

Walters was not hurt. He spent at least 30 minutes in tree, KEYT reported.
