An elderly man had no choice but to sleep high up on a coconut tree after his wife kicked him out of the house.

The incident unfolded on Monday in Midlands, Zimbabwe.

The 76-year-old man threw a temper tantrum, climbing onto the 27 foot tall coconut tree, and remained there for about four hours.

His worried wife called rescue workers, and she begged him to come down for his own safety. The man refused her request and fell asleep in the tree.

Later, the old man said that he was angry with his wife because she had interrupted his nap. His wife complained that she wanted to clean the living room and her husband refused to move out of the way.
