ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Video was released Thursday of a bizarre May rescue of a man nailed to a tree.

A city worker found Jose Duran with both hands nailed to a tree after hearing screams for help, KRQE reported. 

An officer responded and found Duran conscious and breathing, but in pain. The officer called for rescue and asked how Duran got into the situation. He said two men were sent to threaten and scare him for his involvement in a bad real estate deal. 

No arrests have been made and police don’t know whether this was a payback crime or cartel-related.
