A Tree Trimmer Recovers From A 10-Foot Fall

Tree Trimmer Falls

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - A Santa Barbara landscaper recovers after a 10-foot fall Thursday morning.

The incident happened near Hope Ranch in Santa Barbara, while the man was trimming a tree. The worker fell from a ladder and hit his head. Luckily he only suffered minor injuries.

"He was actually sitting up and answering questions. He was complaining about some dizziness from the fall which is completely normal. He's actually pretty fortunate he wasn't hurt more," said fire captain Chris Mailes.

The worker was taken to Cottage Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
