Tennessee Man rescued from tree after failed attempt to rescue his drone

A drone pilot who tried to rescue his aircraft when it got stuck at the top of a tree at Rogersville’s Crockett Creek Park Saturday evening had to be rescued from the tree himself when he got stuck about 40 feet up.
Shortly after 8 p.m. on Saturday, the man — who luckily had his phone in his pocket at the time — called Rogersville emergency dispatch from about 40 feet up in the tree to report that he’d climbed about halfway to the top and couldn’t get back down.
