A woman who became stuck on a downtown Toronto construction crane’s hook block, dangling approximately 12 storeys above the ground, was taken into police custody following a daring rescue by emergency workers.
The woman was lowered to the ground after being harnessed to the firefighter at approximately 8:30 a.m., after she was spotted by area residents overnight.
Bystanders broke out into applause as the pair safely touched the ground.
