Dothan, Ala.: A 4-year-old Alabama boy who climbed 50 feet up a tree on a dare from his big brother had to be rescued after he got stuck for about two hours.

The Dothan Eagle reports that a tree crew used a bucket truck to rescue Parker Clark in Geneva County on Tuesday.

Grandmother Barbara Dawsey says the boy and two his brothers were playing outside when she went outside to see the preschooler about 50 feet up a tree. He'd climbed it on a dare.

One boy stayed on the ground, and Dawsey says she was able to coax another boy out of the tree. But Parker was stuck.

Dawsey called 911, but firefighters couldn't reach him. She says a tree crew rescued the boy.

The child wasn't hurt.
