[WATCH] Man swings dangerously in the air after unorthodox palm tree cutting
A Californian man has taken people's breath away after a video of him cutting a palm tree with a chain saw in a less than orthodox manner, was posted on social media.
The man pegged as a professional tree cutter climbs to the very top of the tall tree and begins sawing off the top end. The flexible tree takes him on a ride that looks more hair-raising than an amusement park ride.
Fox32Chicago reports that a separate video showed him returning to the ground safely.
PS. Don't try this at home!
