It's a bird... It's a plane... It's a parachuter!

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! Look... Up in the sky... It's a bird... It's a plane... It's a parachuter!

A parachutist had to be rescued from a tree in a busy town centre after becoming trapped in high branches.
The man is believed to have blown two miles off course whilst skydiving with Peterlee Parachute Centre, landing in the tree in St Cuthbert Road, Peterlee, County Durham.

The drop zone controller at Peterlee Parachute Centre said: "He was a first time parachuter.
He was jumping by himself and he was jumping from three and a half thousand feet."
"He made a reasonably good exit and everything went fine when he left the aircraft.
"He didn't take control of the canopy as he was trained to do and ended up flying off the airfield and landed in a tree."
