"He kept climbing up until he hit the top, and then that’s when we started to hear him scream," Kenny said.
"Higher and higher and higher," he said, recounting the boy's climb to the top.
Kenny then heard the boy yell for help. That's when he put his nerves on the back burner and made the call to police.
"I got my phone out and me and Italia called 911," he said.
Firefighters used a ladder truck to rescue 5-year-old Kyler.
His mother says her little boy has a unique ability to scale trees in just a matter of minutes.
"I just keep climbing branches and climbing, until I get tired," said Kyler.
But this time he may have gotten nervous. He says some of the branches he used to climb up may have snapped, causing him some concern.
"Some of the branches fell," he said.
Firefighters thanked Kenny for making the brave call to first responders, and Kyler has a message for everyone involved in the rescue.
"Thank you!" Kyler said.
Kyler's mother said she's already caught him trying to climb a few trees since that day, and from now on, she's going to keep a closer eye.
