Woman rescued after becoming trapped in banyan tree

Emergency crews in Florida made an unusual rescue on Tuesday morning after a woman became stuck in a banyan tree.

The Key West Police Department received a call to help a woman stuck in a tree that she had attempted to climb.

Officer Scott Standerwick and a Fire Rescue unit responded after learning that the local woman was stuck inside the giant banyan tree.

Officer Standerwick and the others were eventually able to free the woman, who was wedged in the branches of the tree. "They popped her out like a cork," a Key West Police Department spokesperson said.
