This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

Hollis NH firefighters were dispatched to the area of Runnells Bridge Rd at the Pepperell MA line for a parachuter stuck in a tree about 60 ft up.  Companies arrived on scene and confirmed that a skydiver had landed in a tree and was stuck but not injured.  Command requested a Pepperell ambulance to the scene as a precaution and a local tree company was sent to the scene in case the tree climber was needed.  Hollis Tower Company 1 made it into the field and was able to set up along the tree line and rescue the sky diver and bring him to the ground without incident.  Companies remained on scene assisting in getting the parachutist gear out from the tree.
