Crews have rescued a paraglider whom they said was stuck 30 feet up a tree on Poo Poo Point.
The man reportedly spent about three hours up in the tree.
Rescuers said the paraglider was not injured.
Crews worked with tree climbers, equipped for the job, to help shimmy the man down.
Officials said the paraglider dropped his self-rescue bag, which contained rope used to help a paraglider rappel down in situations such as getting stuck in a tree.
