A palm tree trimmer had a frightening day Wednesday in Koreatown when he was trapped 40 feet up and had to be rescued by firefighters.

Firefighters went to the 200 block of South Alexandria Avenue about 10:15 a.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.

The man, who had a safety strap in place, was brought to safety via a ladder and was examined by paramedics, the LAFD reported.

Trimming palm trees is often believed to be a dangerous profession.
