Porter firefighters have been to a home in Texas two days in a row to rescue someone stuck in a tree.
Homeowner Morning Starr Gardner says a woman she hired to trim her tree was trapped 25 feet above ground Sunday afternoon.
The woman tied herself to the tree for safety reasons, but she became tangled in the rope when part of the tree fell. Crews used a ladder to bring the woman down.
She was airlifted to the hospital to be treated for her injuries.
This was the second attempt to trim the tree. Gardner says the woman’s husband got stuck in the same tree just yesterday.
“They climbed the tree. They were bringing branches down. They were doing all right,” Gardner said. “Then I hear, ‘call 911″ because he had cut his hand open.”
Gardner says the man lost the tips of three fingers when the chainsaw he was using slipped.
When is it permissible to beat my wife?
Answer from Egyptian cleric Abd Al-Rahman:
“A good woman, even if beaten by her husband, puts her hand in his and says: ‘I will not rest until you are pleased with me.’ This is how the Prophet Muhammad taught his women to be,” Al-Rahman said in comment aired in August on Al-Nas television.
Tralslation was provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“Islam instructs a man to beat his wife as a last resort before divorce, so that she will mend her ways, treat him with kindness and respect, and know that her husband has a higher status than her,” he said.
“I say to every husband: Do not rush to beat her whenever a problem arises. O servant of Allah, Allah said: ‘Admonish those of them on whose part you fear disobedience, refuse to share their beds, and beat them.’ One should not beat out of anger.”
Al-Rahman said that beating one’s wife is a matter of discipline. He said that the Prophet Muhammad beat one of his wives, Aisha, in order to instill discipline, not because he enjoyed it.

Police in Texas report that a woman who was aiming for a skunk, accidentally shot her husband when the bullet ricocheted.
Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk said that the husband was expected to be released Monday from a Houston hospital.
Kirk said that the accident happened Sunday night at the family’s house near College Station. The husband was inside.
The sheriff said that the wife, who has a concealed handgun permit, came out of the home’s detached garage and saw a skunk. The woman fired a .45-caliber handgun at the animal but missed.
The bullet ricocheted off a deck, went through the house’s closed back door and struck the husband in the abdomen.
Kirk said that the bullet did not damage any vital organs.
Kirk declined to release the names of the couple.
A man in Sydney, Australia thought he had the perfect place to hide his money, but ended up with a costly batch of chicken nuggets instead.
The unidentified man hid approximately $15,000 in his oven on Saturday after selling his Toyota Supra to help with his mortgage payment, according to a report.
But on Wednesday, the man’s wife decided to pre-heat some chicken nuggets for their two daughters, sending their savings up in smoke.
“[She] never used it,” the man told NineMSN.com, as to why he hid the money in the oven. “It was everything I had. I’ve got nothing to my name. That money was supposed to go towards my mortgage.”
The man attempted to deposit the money at his local bank after the accident, but they refused to allow the transaction, he told NineMSN.com.
It is unknown if the man will be able to get his money back. Since Australia’s currency is plastic, the bills melted together. The Reserve Bank of Australia’s policy suggests customers with damaged bills take them to a local bank, which have already denied his request.
“If several pieces of the same banknote are presented, the Reserve Bank’s policy is for each piece to be worth a share of the value in proportion to its size,” the RBA policy says.
“The combined value paid should be the face value of the original banknote.”
A public display of anger over love gone wrong — or a celebration over a marriage ended — caused traffic delays on North 21st Street in Superior, Wisconsin, on Wednesday.
Large signs reading “X-HUSBAND SALE” and “FREE” by a pile of discarded belongings in the front yard of 202 N. 21st St. caused passersby to slow down and check out what was there.
But it was the once-green GMC Yukon SUV with flat tires and “cheater” and obscenities spray-painted all over it that slowed traffic to a halt and got the cameras clicking.
Police arrived at the house in mid-afternoon and talked to a woman inside. The vandalized vehicle was towed from the driveway in front of the house a short time later to keep traffic flowing.
Superior Police Sgt. William Lear said there’s no law against spray painting a vehicle in one’s own yard.
“If it’s a running vehicle and someone wants to paint their own car, they can do it,” he said.
What about questionable language painted on it?
“Depends on the language, there’s a fine line there,” Lear said. “If it’s creating a disturbance, if there’s threats, if it’s blocking traffic, we can tow it.”
According to court records, a woman who lived at that address filed for divorce against her husband in Douglas County Circuit Court last July.
The couple got their marriage licence in 1997, records show.
A neighbour, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the incident began on Tuesday after the divorce became final. She said the vehicle was spray-painted by several people and the items put in the front yard between 4 and 8 p.m. That’s when people started stopping for a closer look.
“It looked like they had a painting party,” the neighbour said.
“She cleaned out her husband’s stuff.” It was a getting-rid-of-the-husband type of thing, she said.
“I guess it was her kind of relief, her way to get rid of her anger,” the woman said.
A man in Kenya was recently caught in Nairobi with his manhood stuck inside another man’s wife.
Apparently, the two had been having an affair for a while which the husband had suspected.
The woman’s husband decided to take action by using black magic (charms) on her in order to exposure their evil act.
He visited a witchdoctor who applied black magic on the wife, causing the cheating man to get stuck inside her during the act.
Police could not rescue the man from the black magic, and the husband refused to be persuaded to remove the spell.
A large crowd swelled outside to witness the drama, as police ran out of options on how to help the two.
Eventually the cheating man finally agreed to pay the husband, who is seen in the video wearing a white t-shirt and jeans, Sh20,000 (£150, $240) in compensation.
Then a local pastor was called in to pray and the two were finally separated.
