TULSA, Okla. -

A man is in the hospital after Tulsa fire said he got stuck in a treehouse overnight.

EMSA then took him to the hospital to treat the hernia that was causing his severe stomach pain.

Firefighters said there was another man in the treehouse at the time as well but he wouldn’t come down so they left him there.
