A young woman who scaled a 20 storey crane on Wellesely Street and became stranded there, has been safely lowered to the ground. She was immediately told she was under arrest, handcuffed and placed in an ambulance to be taken to hospital. This dramatic conclusion to her unusual adventure involved heroic efforts by firefighters and police to reach her, place her in a harness and lower her safely to the ground. It appears she climbed up the crane in the middle of the night and incredibly, then slid down greasy steel cable to land on the pulley. Such cabling is rough and sharp with the prospect of terrible damage to the skin quite obvious. The woman was fitted and secured in a harness, strapped to a firefighter and then lowered. She was calm and was seen to be smiling at the rescuer who was with her on the pulley. Her joy at being rescued quickly turned to a grim appearance as police spoke to her and then arrested her.
