That's Engine 3 rescuing a parachutist from a tree during this afternoon's St. Patrick's Day celebration in downtown Raleigh. He was aiming for Moore Square, but was blown a bit off course. The veteran jumper was rescued by parking an engine beneath him. His parachute was recovered with the assistance of aerial ladder special-called to the scene. Read the WRAL story.
