Firefighters with a ladder truck rescued a tree trimmer today after the hydraulics on his bucket failed and he got stuck near the crown of a mature tree in a yard on Cornell Street in Roslindale.
The tree worker was stuck in his bucket about 40 feet behind 158 Cornell St., between Kittredge and Washington streets, when firefighters on Ladder 25 arrived shortly before 1:30 p.m.. They extended their own ladder up and helped guide the worker down.
