Police in New Mexico have released video footage showing the rescue of a man whose hands were nailed to a tree. In May, a city worker found Jose Duran in the middle of the Bosque in Albuquerque, N.M., where he was nailed to a tree yelling for help, KRQE reports.
The worker told police he was freaked out because he wasn't sure if other people were around. When police arrived, they found Duran still conscious, but he was groaning in pain. The video showed the moment police called for help as the officer told Duran paramedics were on the way. Duran wouldn't tell police his name or what happened to him, but eventually he opened up.

Duran said two men were sent there that day to threaten and scare him due to his part in "an ugly real estate deal." Over a dozen first responders showed up to aid Duran and to cut him loose from the tree.
