From Falmouth Fire/Rescue:

Earlier this afternoon, Engine 25 and Ladder 26 were dispatched to the Seacoast Shores area of East Falmouth for a 12 year old person who was stuck in a tree.

The crews arrived to find the child approximately 40 feet in the air with his leg caught between a branch and the tree trunk.

Utilizing several ground ladders the crew were able to access the child and get a safety rope in place. He was eventually freed and assisted to the ground with no injuries.
