ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police in Albuquerque say a man has been found alive with his hands nailed to a tree in a forest.
They say officers received a call around 8:30 a.m. Monday about an injured man on the east bank of the Rio Grande.
Police say they found a man standing in front of a tree with his hands next to his shoulders and each of his hands had one nail through it.
The Albuquerque Journal reports the nails were about 3 inches long and the man wasn’t bleeding when officers found him.
Police removed the man from the tree and took him to a hospital.
His name hasn’t been released.
Police don’t know how long the man had been in the bosque or how he ended up nailed to a tree.
