On February 2, 1999 at 1718 the Kennett Mo. Fire department responded to a child trapped. On arrival they found a 3 or 4 year old child whoes leg got stuck in a split of an old dead tree's trunk. Because of the rotting condition of the tree firefighters were able to use a spreader in the split and widen the trunk just enough to free the child. The child was uninjured.
