    I am surprised he is still alive.

    I'll be surprised if he remains so

    Yeah, in something along the lines of 2 HOURS, I can't imagine 2 DAYS

    I'm surprised  he didn't throw a clot already

    If you're gonna climb trees, you should be physically fit. Just in case something like this happens.

    I'm amazed this guy is still alive. I'll be even Amazier'ed if he stays that way.

    Sounds like he had a really bad harness malfunction. Mine won't do that; the safety strap is between your shoulders where it belongs in case you fall. You end up with head up and feet down, and a very sore crotch!

    Also surprised he lasted 2 days. Normally the diaphragm and muscles  in chest give out and you would asphyxiate before 2 days had passed. He's been very lucky so far, and hope his luck holds out and he recovers.
