UP A TREE

Fortean Times - - STRANGE DAYS -

Gil­bert Sanchez, 47, left his home in La Paz, Philip­pines, to live 60ft (18m) up a nearby co­conut tree in 2014, af­ter be­ing hit on the head with a gun dur­ing an al­ter­ca­tion. Afraid some­one would come to kill him, for three years he never came down, un­til au­thor­i­ties ‘res­cued’ him by force on 11 Oc­to­ber. Ev­ery day, his mother Winifreda would bring him food, wa­ter and cig­a­rettes, which he hauled up by rope. thaivisa.com, 24 Oct 2017.
