Deputies free man stuck inside hollow tree trunk

I'm sure he has some perfectly reasonable explanation for his predicament.

AP reports:

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. — Authorities in Southern California say they rescued a man stuck inside a hollow tree trunk by following the sounds of his screams down into a creek bed.

The Orange County Register reports that Orange County sheriff's deputies found the man stuck up to his chest inside a narrow hole in the trunk, which extended about four or five feet underground.

The newspaper says firefighters took about 90 minutes to free him once they found him Tuesday morning.
