When monsoon storms knocked a tree onto someone's house near Phoenix, the unlucky homeowners naturally called an arborist to clean up the mess.

With chainsaw in hand, the tree trimmer tied onto the tree and began cutting off branches, but he didn't notice how much of the tree was hanging off the roof.

That's about the time he went for an unexpected ride.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.
