Info from Licensor: "My crew was removing a tree from a backyard, when I went to send a selfie of the remainder to my girlfriend. I ended up taking a video, and in that same moment, the arborist in the bucket dropped a chunk, which bounced off a branch nub, did a complete flip over the outrigger of the lift, and landed about 7 feet behind me. In total shock, all I could do was look at it."
