The video shows the man cutting the top part of the tree. Since the tree is quite tall, it bends halfway as he cuts it. While many were expecting that the man would get blown away with the trimmed part of the tree, the man ended up getting stuck at the top of the tree’s trunk.

As soon as the top part of the tree falls to the ground, its trunk swings to and fro as the man clings to it.In the background, people can be heard laughing and expressing shock at the sight.
