Rare tigers trap 5 men up tree Thursday; help won't arrive till Wednesday Published: July 8, 2013

Several tigers have trapped five Indonesian men up a tree in a national park on Sumatra island, after mauling a sixth person to death, police say and the BBC reports.

The group was attacked on Thursday after they accidentally killed a tiger cub. One man died while the others managed to flee up some branches.

The survivors alerted nearby villagers using mobile phones.

It could take rescue crews up to three days before they find the men in the Gunung Leuser jungle, officials said.
