TORONTO —Toronto police and firefighters had to deal with another construction crane climber on Wednesday night (Aug. 2).
Man climbs down from crane after three hour negotiation

Authorities were called at about 11:30 p.m. concerning a man who had scaled a crane at a downtown work site at Dundas and Jarvis.

After about three hours of negotiations involving police and a psychiatrist, the man descended about 20 metres on a fire truck aerial ladder and was taken to hospital to be assessed.

There was no immediate word on possible charges.

The incident was similar to one in Toronto in April when a 23-year-old woman was stranded for hours after scaling a construction crane in the middle of the night.

Marisa Lazo — a dual Canadian-American citizen — was charged with six counts of mischief by interfering with property and released on bail with several conditions, including staying away from construction sites and rooftops.
