Elyria Assistant Fire Chief Ron Brlas said firefighters responded to a call just before 7 p.m. Monday and discovered the boy had climbed high into the tree and soon realized he was unable to climb back down, WEWS-TV, Cleveland, reported Tuesday.
Brlas said a firefighter climbed up the tree to cut branches out of the way so the basket of the truck could reach the boy.
The boy was brought back to the ground about 9:20 p.m., after spending more than 2 hours in the tree.
Paramedics said the boy was checked out and found to be uninjured.
