December 8, 2022  By CTV News

Toronto Fire executed a high-angle rescue after one person barricaded himself inside the cab of a crane near the foot of Yonge Street in downtown Toronto early Tuesday.

Toronto Fire was called to the scene, near Harbour Street, shortly after 7 a.m. after workers found the person in the cab crane – about 150 feet off the ground – and couldn’t get him out. There was a small fire inside the cab, which firefighters extinguished.

The person was checked over by paramedics and then taken into custody by police when he got back down.
